With the Italian foil team, Diana Bianchedi celebrated many successes, winning two Olympic titles (1992 and 2000), and five World titles (1991, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2001). Her performance in Barcelona was dominant, winning all 15 of her matches, including the deciding bout in the final against Germany. She was unable to share in the victory of the Italian women in Atlanta, injuring her Achilles tendon in her first fight in the individual competition. Bianchedi was able to return in 2000 for her second Olympic gold medal. In addition to her team victories, she has won two individual bronze medals at the World Championships, and the Italian foil title in 1989. After retiring from competition, Bianchedi became vice-president of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) for five years. She has also served as a consultant to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
