NADI Neto (1894-1940) Italy / Fencing
Although the value of the first gold medal won by this Italian in the foil contest in Stockholm in 1912 is debatable, because the French withdrew following a dispute over a point of rule, his performance in Antwerp eight years later was quite exceptional. He won five gold medals: two for single épée and foil and three gold medals per team event in each of the three weapons.His bother Aldo was also part of that triple Olympic champion combination in teams. After becoming a professional he remained unbeaten for many years and won the world title in 1930 just before taking the reins at the Italian fencing federation.
