Casey Kaufold, a senior climber from Conestoga Valley, returned from Tokyo this week for a parade and welcome of the heroes.

She may not have won a medal at the games, but that doesn’t take away from securing a berth at the top of competitive archery.

The women’s individual archery event was one of five archery events held at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics. It was held at Yumenoshima Park with competitors from 40 nations, with each nation counting up to three archers. Kaufold placed 17th out of 64 archers, with South Korea winning all three medals. The best American competitor came in fifth place. She also competed in the women’s team competition where the United States placed eighth.

Casey bought his first bow at the age of two with his parents who own a Lancaster-based archery supplies business. She started competing nationally at the age of 11. Olympic archer Casey Kaufold appears on Talk smart Monday to share details of his Olympic experience.
