3 Fencing Masters vs. 50 Amateur Opponents

(Video Link)

Assuming that this video is labeled correctly, we see three Olympic fencing masters taking on fifty opponents simultaneously. Right from the beginning, the three work together to seize a defensible position. But there are only three of them. They can fall many opponents, but can they prevail against such overwhelming numbers?

I fenced when I was in college. It was fun, but I wasn't very good at it. Like any other fighting sport, it takes a lot of practice to get really good, and there's a big difference between expert and average. Sometimes we would go two or three against the top fencer in our group. We would rarely win. That gave me a visceral understanding of the old quote, "God made some men small, and some men large; but Colt made them all equal."
