Five-time world champion wins Olympic gold

 SYDNEY (AP) -- Hungary's Timea Nagy, a five-time team world champion, scored a point late in the third period to beat Switzerland's Gianna Hadluetzel-Buerki 15-11 for the Olympic gold medal in women's epee.

 Nagy registered the final point with five seconds left in the last period. Teammates carried her off and tossed her into the air.

 Defending gold medallist Laura Flessel-Colovic of France defeated Tatiana Logounova of Russia 15-6 to win the bronze medal.

 Nagy was considered Hungary's third-best contender in the epee, but her higher-rated teammates Ildiko Mincza and Gyongyi Szalay lost in earlier rounds.

 Lougonova, who won a World Cup event this year at England, beat Valerie Barlois-Lerouz of France -- the silver medallist in the 1996 Atlanta Games, en route to the semifinals.
