We at FMG Publications are proud sponsors of USA Shooting. We like the organization’s athletes and leadership. USA Shooting athletes do more than shoot well. They carry the United States Flag on the ranges of the world and represent our country — and our industry — in a way that is notable.
Now, 22 athletes from USA Shooting are set to represent us on the world’s largest stage later this month, the XXX Olympic Summer Games in London.
The U.S. Olympic Shooting Team roster includes six pistol shooters, eight riflemen and -women, six shotgun shooters and two Paralympians. The Olympic team will be formidable, having competed in 25 Olympic Games overall, while garnering 11 Olympic medals previously, including five gold.
The makeup of this team has a distinct military flavor, with nine Olympians and two Paralympians either currently serving or having previously served in the U.S. military. Seven of those athletes are from the U.S. Army’s Marksmanship Unit in Fort Benning, Ga.
Salutes to USA Shooting and our U.S. Olympic Shooting Team. Shoot for gold!
