Kim Peyton-McDonald, who won a gold medal in swimming at the 1976 Olympic Games, died of a brain tumor Saturday at Stanford University Medical Center. She was 29.

She was a member of the gold medal-winning U.S. 400-meter relay team at the Montreal Games and won four events at the 1975 Pan American Games.

Peyton-McDonald first disclosed that she had an inoperable, non-cancerous brain tumor in 1979.
