Last month at the 2022 Grand American, Team Winchester’s Matt Bartholow secured the Doubles Trap World Championship. A back-to-back win after his 2021 victory, Bartholow is the first repeat Doubles World Champion at the Grand American in decades. He was also the Event 20 Champion.

The 2022 Grand American World Trapshooting Championships, which were held August 3-13 at the World Shooting and Recreation Complex in Sparta, Illinois, saw thousands of trapshooters gathering to compete for top honors. The 15-day event started with the AIM Grand National Youth event and then rolled into a week of preliminary contests that culminated with Grand Week—the highest attended American Trap Association (ATA) competition in the world.

Winchester is the official ammunition of the ATA and was in full force during the event with its flagship retail store selling Winchester branded gear and offering promotions for attendees. The shell house was also fully loaded for the competition.

Team Winchester members Harlan Campbell and Matt and Foster Bartholow offered free shooting clinics for youth shooting participants on-site. They, along with other Team Winchester members, stood out among the competition, amassing several podium finishes. Keith Ditto was the runner-up in three events and the ATA 2600 HOA runner-up. In addition, Foster Bartholow was the Event 1 Class AAA Champion, and Dagan Voigtman secured the ATA 2600 AAA title.
