D'ORIOLA Christian (1928 - 2007) France / Fencing
Cousin of the famous two times Olympic horse riding champion, Jonquères d'Oriola, Christian D'Oriola's career in fencing was at least as brilliant as that of his renowned relative. The world champion at age 18, this fencing prodigy produced one of the greatest list of victories in this sport, including 12 world championships.He won two consecutive Olympic titles in the foil fencing even in '52 and 56. Considered to be a reference by several generations of fencers, he very rarely tasted defeat throughout a long career that ended when he was in his forties.
