LONDON, July 28 (UPI) -- Elisa Di Francisca led an Italian sweep of the medals Saturday in the women's individual foil.

The silver went to Arianna Errigo and the bronze to three-time defending champion Valentina Vezzali, who had been trying to become the first woman in Olympic history to win the same event four straight times.

Italy recorded the first medal sweep of the London Olympics. It was the second time there had been a sweep of the medals in this event, Germany having done so in Seoul 24 years ago.
