Olympic Shooting News

Yeah, I know. The media's got us all wired to associate firearms, crime, and violence. This is my small attempt at de-wiring. Here are the results for the Olympic shooting sports competitions. America's Kim Rhode took a gold medal in the womens' double trap. Russia had gold medals in Men's Free Pistol and Men's Trap and silver and bronze medals in Men's Running Target. China turned in a very impressive performance, medaling in Mens' Double Trap, Womens' Double Trap, and Womens' Skeet. Still to go -- Men's 50m 3-position rifle; Men's Rapid-Fire Pistol, Men's Skeet, Men's 50m prone rifle; and Women's 50m 3-position rifle.
