Lee Kiefer became the first American woman to win a gold medal in the women’s individual foil event and earned Team USA’s first fencing medal of the Tokyo games. She defeated reigning Olympic champion Inna Deriglazova 15-13 to capture her first career Olympic medal after finishing fifth in London.
She is one of 11 current, and former Notre Dame fencers that are competing in the Tokyo Olympics. Lee graduated from Notre Dame in 2017. She is currently a student at the University of Kentucky medical school.
