Personal: Coached by her father Bob Hurley, Kelley and her younger sister Courtney have competed on World Teams together since Kelley was 17. Kelley qualified for her first Olympic Team in 2008 as the only women's epee fencer from the United States to do so. In 2012, Hurley qualified for her second team as a replacement athlete. Hurley not only fulfilled her dream of competing at the Olympic Games with her sister, but the two won bronze in the team event as members of the first U.S. Women's Epee Team ever to earn an Olympic medal. After the Games, she plans to pursue her next dream of preparing for medical school and becoming a doctor.
