Fencing

Ten fencers, nine men and one woman, represented Hungary in 1924. It was the nation's fourth appearance in the sport; Hungary was one of nine nations to have women compete in the first Olympic fencing event for women.

The team competitions resulted in two medals for Hungary. In somewhat of a disappointment for Hungary, the sabre team failed to win the gold medal; it was the first time a Hungarian sabre team competed but did not win. The finals match against Italy proved decisive, as both Hungary and Italy beat the other two teams in the final. Hungary and Italy split the individual bouts in their match, with eight apiece. The tie-breaker for the match, and thus the gold medal, was number of touches between Hungary and Italy; Italy won 50 to 46. The foil team earned the country's first non-sabre fencing medal, winning the bronze.

The Hungarian men had success in the individual sabre competition, with three of the four Hungarians reaching the final. Pósta and Garai were both in the three-way tie-breaker for medal placement, finishing first and third respectively. Schenker finished fourth, and was also the only Hungarian man to compete individually in another weapon; he was eliminated in the first round of the foil.

Tary, representing Hungary in the women's foil competition, reached the final and placed sixth overall.
