The qualification rounds on Saturday consist of four rounds of poules and a preliminary direct elimination. No fencer is eliminated until after the last round of poules. The winners of each of the poules in round two, three or four are directly qualified for next day’s competition, as well as those who qualifies from the DE round that completes the first day. The ranking of the fencers for the second day will be made according to what stage in the competition the fencer has qualified for the second day. Approximately half of the number of the participating fencers will be qualified for Sunday’s DE, which will be fenced with repêchage.
