Boris Onishchenko (1976)
Epee Fencing Controversy
Boris Onishchenko was a Soviet union pentathlete who created an epee fencing controversy. Onishchenko was in a fencing match against British fencer, Adrian Parker. Onishchenko's sword was counting for hits when he didn't actually make contact with his opponent. The British noticed this. After that match, Onishchenko's sword was inspected by the British. It turned out that there was a modification on the grip that let him have the ability to score points by applying an amount of force to create a circuit. Boris Onishchenko was disqualified, leading British to win.
