Height of Male Fencers

The tallest male fencer on the list is Konstantin Lokhanov from Russia, standing at an impressive 199 cm (6'7") tall. Their height gives them a significant reach advantage, allowing them to effectively control the distance and execute long-range attacks with precision.

On the other end, the shortest male fencer is Edoardo Luperi from Italy, standing 170 cm (5'7") tall. Despite his relatively shorter stature, Edoardo  Luperi's agility and quick reflexes make him a formidable opponent, especially in close-quarters exchanges where his speed can be an advantage.

The average height of male fencers is around 184cm based on the table.

Weight of Male Fencers

When it comes to weight, the lightest male fencer is Daniele Garozzo from Italy and Benjamin Kleibrink from Germany, weighing 65 kg (143 lbs). Their lightweight allows her to move swiftly on the piste, making her a nimble and evasive fencer.

Conversely, the heaviest male fencer is Konstantin Lokhanov from Germany, weighing 90 kg (199 lbs). Hartung's robust build and strength give him power in his attacks and defense, making him a force to be reckoned with in bouts. On average, male fencers on the list stand at around 184 cm (6'0") tall and weigh approximately 77 kg (170 lbs), showcasing a diverse range of body types and skills within the sport.

The average height of male fencers is around 77.65kg based on the table.

Height of Female Fencers

Among the female fencers listed, the towering presence of Martina Batini from Italy stands out at an impressive 186 cm (6'2"). Her height grants her a distinctive advantage (even taller than most male fencer counterparts), enabling her to dominate the fencing strip with a commanding reach and strategic prowess, often executing precise long-range attacks that keep opponents at bay.

Conversely, Yuka Ueno from Japan, standing at 159 cm (5'2"), embodies a dynamic agility and rapid responsiveness that deftly maneuvers her through close-quarters engagements. Branza's shorter stature proves deceptive, as she leverages her speed and nimbleness to outmaneuver opponents, showcasing the diversity of styles and strategies in fencing.

The average height of female fencers is around 172cm (around 12 cm below male fencers) based on the table.

Weight of Female Fencers

Turning to weight distinctions, Lee Kiefer from the USA emerges as the featherweight contender, tipping the scales at a nimble 49 kg (108 lbs). Kiefer's lightweight frame complements her lightning-fast movements, allowing her to dart across the piste with fluidity and precision, often catching opponents off guard with her quick reflexes.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Martina Batini from Italy embodies strength and resilience, weighing in at 80 kg (176 lbs). Batini's muscular build lends power and force to her attacks, making her a formidable force in bouts where her strength and endurance are on full display. These contrasts in height and weight highlight the multifaceted nature of fencing, where diverse physical attributes contribute to a rich tapestry of skills and strategies among female fencers, each bringing a unique perspective to the sport.

The average weight of female fencers is around 62kg (around 15 kg lighter than male fencers) based on the table.
