Ginny Thrasher heaps praise upon the impact the NRA has on her shooting career, saying that the yearly National Championship had a huge impact in forming the confidence and skills she uses today.

Since Rio is just one hour ahead of the East Coast of the U.S., the 2016 Summer Games might be the most live Olympics ever. NBCUniversal will be presenting 2,084 hours of Olympic programming across 11 television networks.

Additionally, all Olympic shooting events will be streamed live from the NBC Olympics website. Livestreaming is your best bet to watch the drama unfold as it happens—and to get the most up-to-date medal count for your favorite Olympic shooting sport discipline.

Notable athletes such as Kim Rhode, Ginny Thrasher, Vincent Hancock, Morgan Craft, Josh Richmond, Glenn Eller, Sarah Scherer and Corey Cogdell-Unrein are just a few of the talented U.S. competitive shooters participating this year in Rio.
