Federal Ammunition sponsored competitor and USA Shooting trapshooter Derrick Mein earned two medals last month at the 2023 International Shooting Sports Federation World Cup for Shotgun, including a gold medal in the Mixed Team Trap event with teammate Rachel Tozier.

The competition, which took place January 11-24 in Rabat, Morocco, was among the first this year for USA Shooting’s talented athletes.

“We had a great start to the shooting season in Morocco. While there is always room for improvement, it’s nice to start the year off with a solid performance,” Mein said. “Bringing home a couple medals always feels good.”

As mentioned, Mein won gold in Mixed Team Trap with his partner Rachel Tozier and, with teammates Derek Haldeman and Will Hinton, he also captured a bronze medal in the Men’s Trap Team event.

To win the Mixed Team Trap event, Mein and Tozier faced the Polish team of Tomasz Pasierbski and Sandra Bernal in the gold medal match. After a 5-5 tie, the event went to shoot-offs, with the U.S. shooters going on to win (+2 to +1) to take first place and the gold medal.

In the Men’s Trap Team event, the trio of Mein, Haldeman and Hinton took on Kuwaiti shooters Yousef Alrashidi, Khaled Almudhaf and Naser Meqlad in the bronze medal match, which the Americans won 6-0.

“In the winter, it can be difficult to get quality training in cold weather,” Mein said. “One thing I don’t have to worry about is my Federal Premium ammunition, it outperforms the competition in all weather conditions.”

In all, Team USA earned nine medals at the ISSF World Cup in Rabat, Morocco. That tally includes five gold medals.
