Lilo Allgayer started her fencing career at Turnverein Offenbach which later turned to Fechtclub Offenbach. Her sporting career was closely linked to her fencing master, Fritz Gazzera, under whom she trained from 1930 until World War II. In 1940 she won her first German Championship, to which she would add eight more. She competed at the World Championships in 1937 at Paris, in 1954 at Luxemburg, and in 1955 at Rome. At the 1952 Helsinki Olympics she was the only German participant in fencing. In 1951 she was one of the first German fencers to beat their Italian competitors in an international match. She died at the age of 94 as Lilo König.
