America’s Lee Kiefer’s took gold at the women’s foil grand prix in Turin, Italy

The world No3 faced her first major test in the semi final against Arianna Errigo of Italy, a two-time world champion and 2012 Olympic silver medalist.

And the 22 year old walked away with a 15-11 win over her rival.

In the final she was up against compatriot Nicole Ross.

After suffering a minor injury, she picked herself up to notch up a 15-8 score win, taking career record to 4-1 against her 2012 Olympic teammate.

The final was the first time Team USA took gold and silver at a women’s foil grand prix.
