MANGIOROTTI Eduardo (1919) Dario (1916) Italy / Fencing
13 medals, including 6 golds, crowned the long Olympic career of this Italian fencer. But most of his titles were won in teams. His only individual medal was won in 1952 at Helsinki beating his brother Dario in the final.Mangiorotti took part in no less than five Olympics between 1936 and 1960. IF not for the war, he could easily have fenced in seven! It was his father, Guiseppe, a former Olympic athlete at the London Games of 1908, who taught him the basics of fencing and forced him to use his left hand because it is an undoubted advantage in the sport.His elder brother, Dario, picked up a team gold and two silvers.
