Due to some time constraints, I will have to keep this update short today. Sorry for the brevity! Check out the links for more detail.
Day 4 in Rio was relatively uneventful for USA Shooting. The lone USA 25m women's sport pistol athlete, Enkelejda Shehaj finished 33rd in the event, which is the last of the two women's pistol events at the Olympics. So unfortunately, there will be no Olympic medal for the American ladies in pistol this year. The winner, Anna Korokaki of Greece, medaled bronze in the air pistol event. This win solidifies her presence as a dominant force in international sport shooting.
Enkelejda Shehaj is shooting in the 25m women's sport pistol event today in Rio. That's her in the red in front of the screen that's displaying results to the crowd. #SIMOS 🎯🔫🇺🇸 #Repost @usashooting with @repostapp ・・・ Good luck to Enkelejda Shehaj as she shoots Sport Pistol today at the Olympic Games! #teamusa #rio2016
On the archery field, the elimination round in men's individual competition brought together a tough lineup for Team USA - two-time silver medalist teammates Brady Ellison and Jake Kaminski ended up matched up against each other. Zach Garrett, the third member of the men's silver medal archery team, competes on Day 5. No matter what the outcome of that match, an American would win and an American would lose. For Brady Ellison, this win was a big milestone - in the last two Olympic games he competed in, he was eliminated in the round of 32. Now he will have a chance to continue as the top seed in the tournament after Kim Woojin was eliminated in the second round.
