Rising-junior Noam Mills of the Harvard women’s fencing team won a bronze medal at the European Fencing Championships in Leipzig, Germany Sunday. The two-time All-American for the Crimson went 7-3 in the tournament completing in epee.

After suffering two losses in the preliminaries, Mills, who finished second at the NCAA Championships in March, rallied in the elimination round, winning four straight matches before falling to the eventual gold medalist Imke Duplitzer of Germany.

Mills competed for Team Israel at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, advancing to the round of 32 in the epee. She was the 2006 Junior World Champion and finished seventh at the 2009 European Championships.
