Lee Kiefer falls in foil quarterfinals
Lee Kiefer, a recent graduate of Dunbar (Lexington, Ky.), lost in the Olympic foil quarterfinals 15-10 to eventual silver medalist Arianna Errigo of Italy on Saturday.
But the 18-year-old wasn't dwelling on her loss.
"I'm definitely excited to be here, but I'm not overwhelmed," Kiefer said. "And I feel like I have so much more to learn before the next Olympics, and I hope everything can go well. A lot of athletes, they get injured or they just find other things to do. So I just want to keep being motivated and stay strong for the next one, so I can do better."
Kiefer will get another shot at a medal in the team event on Aug. 2.
