    Highly-decorated sabre talent who owns the most unique accomplishments of any competitor in U.S. fencing history, headlined by gold-medal performances at the 2004 Olympics in Athens and 2008 Olympics in Beijing ... was selected to lead the 529-member United States Olympic Team as the American flag bearer in the 2012 Olympics in London ... after two years at Notre Dame, elected to turn professional and give up her remaining collegiate eligibility prior to the 2006-07 season ... won NCAA women's sabre title in 2006, besting her Olympic teammate Emily Jacobson of Columbia in rematch of title bout from 2005 (when Zagunis played a lead role in ND winning the combined NCAA team title) ... finished 2006 as the No. 1 women's sabrist in the world, according to the FIE rankings ... as a pro, ended as the year-end world No. 1 in 2009, '10 and '11 ... her most noteworthy fencing accomplishments include becoming: the first U.S. fencer to win an Olympic gold medal in 100 years; the first U.S. women's fencer ever to clinch an Olympic medal finish; the third fencer (first since 1968) - and sixth woman - ever to be the U.S. Olympic flag bearer (in '12); the second U.S. fencer to win an FIE World Cup season points title (in '06); one of the first U.S. fencers (from either gender), along with club teammate Becca Ward, ever to reach a World Championship gold-medal bout (silver medal, in '06), with only one previous U.S. fencer having earned a World Championship medal ... if she wins a medal in London, Zagunis would tie former Fighting Irish track & field All-American/head coach Alex Wilson ('32) for the the most medals won by a Notre Dame athlete in Olympic competition -- Wilson earned four medals for his native Canada at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics (bronze in 4x400-meter relay) and the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics (silver in 800 meters; bronze in both 400 meters and 4x400-meter relay) ... tremendous athlete (youth soccer player) with great tactical skill ... employs tireless training and "all-business" approach for every bout (regardless of the level of competition ) ... benefited from training under former Notre Dame assistant coach Ed Korfanty, developing a wide variety of actions on the strip ... very goal-oriented in all aspects of her life, including extensive endurance training ... her background in soccer can be seen in her athleticism, speed, anticipation skills and quick reaction time ... delayed enrolling at Notre Dame one year in order to pursue Olympic dream ... product of Oregon Fencing Alliance, along with eventual Notre Dame teammates Valerie Providenza, Patrick Ghattas and Bill Thanhouser ... one of seven athletes featured in the Showtime special "Bud Greenspan Presents Athens 2004: Stories of Olympic Glory" ... that special (Nov.

(38-8) in NCAA round-robin bouts ranks fourth among ND women's fencers, behind foilists Molly Sullivan (.915; 54-5), Alicja Kryczalo (.913; 84-8) and Walsh (.870; 80-12).

'06) included wins over France's Leonore Perrus (round-of-16), Poland's Olga Socha (15-8 quarterfinal) and Italy's Gioia Marzocca (15-11 semifinal) before narrowly losing to France's Anne-Lise Touya in final (13-15), with nearly 3,000 spectators on hand to see that matchup between 2004 Olympic champ and 2005 world champion ... headed to Budapest later that month, with 15-10 win over China's Xue Tan in round-of-16 (their first meeting since the 2004 Olympic final), a quarterfinal win over Japan's Sakura Kaneko (15-10) and 15-14 semifinal vs. Ukraine's Olga Kharlan before losing final to Russia's Velikaia (10-15) ... competed in Lamezia Terme (March 10) days before helping Notre Dame win NCAA title ... combined with Thompson, Sada Jacobson and former Columbia fencer Emma Baratta to win women's sabre team competition in Hanoi (in addition to her 10thplace finish) ... lost to Ward in Klagenfurt semifinals before picking up bronze in Vancouver ... her third World Cup event in June of '06 included combining with Ward, Thompson and Sada Jacobson for thrilling title-match win over Russia (45-44) at Las Vegas, in addition to her individual title after facing a tough field, with key wins over Thompson (round-of-32), recent Notre Dame signee Eileen Hassett (round-of-16; 15-7), a pair of French fencers in the quarterfinals (15-14 vs. Perrus) and semifinals (15-12 vs. Touya), and Italy's Ilaria Bianco in 15-14 title bout.

Jacobson, who fenced at Yale, defeated top seed Touya of France in the quarterfinals ... former Stanford foilist Iris Zimmermann is the only other U.S. fencer with a World Championship medal (bronze, '99).


    2004 OLYMPIC NOTES: Signed letter-of-intent with Notre Dame in Nov., 2002, and graduated the next spring before embarking on 15-month training regimen for shot at Olympics ... cutoff for qualifying was April 1 and she narrowly missed one of the two initial U.S. spots ('04 Games did not include three-fencer women's sabre team competition) ... she and Emily Jacobson were contending for the final spot and it came down to a bout in late March at a tournament in Italy, vs. Emily's sister Sada ... Sada's 15-14 win left her sister 10th in the world rankings - just ahead of Zagunis, who continued to train and was granted another chance when Nigeria declined to send its fencer Jacqueline Esimaje ... Zagunis, who had risen to sixth in the world, received the open spot as the highest-ranked fencer not already in the Olympic field (the African region had no other sabreists in the top-100) ... headed to Athens and Helleniko Sports Center, where she beat Japan's Madoka Hisagae in round-of-16 (15-13; long 2:39 bout), Azerbaijan's Elena Jemayeva in quick quarterfinal (15-11) and Catalina Gheorghitoaia of Romania in 15-10 semifinal ... commanded gold-medal bout vs. China's Xue Tan, jumping out to 8-2 lead while fencing with tenacity and clever tactics ... Xue battled back to 10-6 before the bout ended 15-9, with Zagunis ceremonially tossed in the air by members of the U.S. team.
