Description

Fencing bout between Swedish pentathletes Ebbe Gyllenstierna af Lundholm and Georg Tage Eugen von Boisman during the 1936 Olympic Games, held at the Tennisplatz (Tennis Courts) of the Reichssportfeldes (now Olympiapark Berlin).

While the fencing portion of the modern pentathlon is documented to have occurred at the Haus des Deutschen Sports, the caption on this photograph testifies that some bouts occurred on the Tennisplatz. Additionally, the names of Finnish pentathletes Ukko Hietala, Lauri Kettunen, and Aaro Kiviperä can be identified on the right-side scoreboard (listed from top to bottom). Left-side scoreboard possibly lists (from top to bottom) the competitors from Brazil: Guilherme Catramby Filho, Rui Duarte, and Anísio da Rocha. Other images in the collection seem to corroborate this—see relations.

Caption on reverse:
"Fünfkämpfer in der fechtrunde!
Die Fortsetzung der Fünfkampfdisziplinen!
---
U.B.z. die beiden Schweden von Gyllenstierna und Boismann im Kampf."
