Final Selections for Shooters on U.S. Olympic Team Being Made

SGT Vincent Hancock, Cory Cogdell, and SGT Glenn Eller–some of America’s top shotgun shooters–nailed down berths on the U.S. Olympic Team last week. Hancock dominated the Olympic Trials and will join Eller as current Olympic Champions who will defend their golds in London. With SSG Josh Richmond already in the fold, USAMU Soldiers make up 75% of the U.S. Men’s Olympic Shotgun team. Hancock, Cogell, Eller, and Richmond will begin preparing soon, along with other U.S. Team members, for the Olympic Games in London this summer. SSG Richmond, profiled in the video below, is one of the favorites to win a medal in trap shooting.

The U.S. Olympics Team’s final shooting sports selections will be determined at the smallbore trials in June. CLICK HERE for more information about the USA Shooting Team.
