Irish #1 Geoffrey Corcoran (QUB) was also V4D2, beating Strom SWE, Vassallo ITA, Skold SWE and Rosenberg SWE. Both seeded well inside the top half and qualified comfortably for the tableau with byes into the L64.
Chambers was knocked out 15-11 by Schmid AUT, finishing 44th of 104 fencers. Corcoran lost to Kimfors SWE in the same round to place 47th.
