[ID: two women in wheelchairs with their masks in their laps, crossing foils. Old, black and white photo. Text: The first wheelchair foil-fencing competition for ladies.]

Photo probably from 1956, at the Stoke Mandeville Games. (Foil was the second weapon fenced in the Games, sabre being first and epee third. Check the source for more info!)

    I don’t know if I’m more impressed that they’re fencing, or that they’re fencing in THOSE chairs. Those are some crap...
