Olympic fencing: Hungarian wins men`s sabre goldLondon: Aron Szilagyi of Hungary turned out unstoppable as he stormed all the way to win the men`s sabre gold at the London Olympic Games Sunday.

The 22-year-old beat Diego Occhiuzzi of Italy 15-10 in the final. Russian Nikolay Kovalev, who knocked out world No.1 Nicolas Limback of Germany 15-12 in the quarterfinal, won the bronze.

Szilagyi raced to a 7-0 lead in the final, and though Occhiuzzi fought back valiantly, the Hungarian managed to hold his lead.

The top four seeds met their waterloo even before the semifinals. Before Linback lost to Kovlev, the second seed Alexey Yakimenko of Russia was upset by Daryl Homer of the US 15-14 in the third round.

World No. 3 Gu Bon Gil of South Korea also fell in the third round where he was bundled out by German Max Hartung.

Italian Aldo Montano, gold medalist at the Athens Olympics, was stopped by Occhiuzzi before the quarterfinals.
