The fencing bonus round is the third modern pentathlon competition at the Tokyo Olympics. Łukasz Gutkowski, after a good swimming performance, scored an extra point in the general classification, beating Austrian Gustav Gustenau. Unfortunately, in the next duel, the Frenchman Valentin Prades turned out to be better than our competitor, who won a total of three fights.

Interestingly, the Austrian Gustav Justinau also fought against the other pole, Sebastian Stasiak. Unfortunately, our player fought passively and the Austrian gave him no chance. Thus, Stasiak did not score a bonus point.

Valentin Belloud (France) and Alex Heredia (Spain) scored the most points in the fencing bonus round. Both players won four fights.

After three five-events, Polish players enter the second ten. ukasz Gutkowski is 15th and Sebastian Stasiak 15th. The next competition will be horse riding.
