Golden Opportunities at the 2016 Olympics

2016 Rio Olympics Filmstrip
The League followed the 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics throughout July, sharing the results of archery and shooting sports competitions. The highlight for the League was when Virginia “Ginny” Thrasher won the first U.S. gold in the women's 10-meter air rifle event. Ginny got her start in competitive shooting sports at the League’s Arlington-Fairfax Chapter, where her dad, Roger, manages the air rifle range. Fellow Olympian Lucas Kozeniesky, who won NCAA All-American honors last year, also trained at the Arlington-Fairfax Chapter while in high school.
