The U. S. National Team coaches, Maj. David Johnson and Sergey Luzov, plan to bring some National Team members to shoot in the International event. The Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) is also sending some of their best to shoot in the International standing course of fire event as well. Members of many top NCAA rifle teams will also attend. This is a great opportunity to see some of the best shooters in the US compete.
