Fernand Versini

Olympic Competitor nr 4931

The extra match (which is now used to decide fifth/sixth place) was not scheduled, so it is doubtful whether this athlete (who did not play in the regular quarterfinal) should qualify as a real Olympian.


Georgios Versis

Olympic Competitor nr 6182

(*) the semifinal rosters are not known, and there were 5 known competitors in the qualifying round, so it is quite possible Versis competed in only some of the semifinal matches
