FENCING FAMILY
Her sister Alex has represented Harvard University at fencing, while her brother Axel has won a cadet European cup. Her father Steve, who captained the fencing team at Duke University, was a tough taskmaster for his children but Kiefer feels the hard work has all been worth it. "Before my sister went to college, we all went to every single practice together. It wasn't only a lot of bonding time but we all made each other better through constant practice. Of course we got sick of it, but there's a point when you know you have to keep working if you want to be good. You just can't dabble around with everything." (kyforward.com, 16 Jul 2012)
