Note: All Pan American Games roster nominations are pending approval of the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Athletes in both skeet events, women’s trap and the mixed team events were determined based on results at the 2019 Spring Selection Match. This is because the maximum of two Olympic quotas has already been secured for those events. Men’s trap, lacking a quota to date, was determined by a USA Shooting selection committee to place the top athletes in a position to secure a quota in Lima. Ultimately, the selection committee referred to the Spring Selection Match results in this discipline as well, naming the top-two finishers from that event. Photo and article courtesy of USA Shooting
