Kelley Hurley (born April 4, 1988) is a female American épée fencer.[1] She won the bronze medal in the women's team épée event at the 2012 Summer Olympics. A standout at the University of Notre Dame, she was a 4-time All-American.

Coached by their 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 épée 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 Épée Team ever to earn an Olympic medal. Hurley went into the Rio 2016 Olympics ranked 18th in the world in the individual épée.

After competing in the Rio Games, she and her sister Courtney are now training arduously for the Tokyo 2020 games.
