Alison Weisz earned the World Championship title, along with landing Team USA an Olympic quota for the Paris 2024 Games, after winning the individual gold medal match in Women’s 10-meter Air Rifle on October 14 at the 2022 ISSF World Championship in Cairo, Egypt.

Weisz, a Tokyo 2020 Olympian, defeated Yuting Huang, from China, in a shot-for-shot final. Her final shot of 10.6X secured her the gold medal.

“I am so grateful to have been able to be named a World Champion and bring home our first (rifle) quota place for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games,” said Weisz. “I am incredibly honored and looking forward to what the future has to bring.”

A native of Montana, Weisz is currently ranked 12th in the world for 10-meter Women’s Air Rifle.

She also landed a silver medal with U.S. teammates Mary Tucker and Sagen Maddalena in the Women’s Team Air Rifle event. The trio finished in second place in the gold medal final behind the team from China, 16-12.

Weisz, who is a soldier serving with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, is no stranger to podium finishes on the international competition scene. She captured a bronze medal at this same range—in the same event—earlier this year at the 2022 Cairo World Cup, as well as two bronze medals at the 2022 Rio De Janeiro World Cup, one for 10-meter Mixed Team Air Rifle and another in Women’s Individual 10-meter Air Rifle. She also earned two silver medals at the 2021 New Delhi World Cup, one for 10-meter Women’s Individual Air Rifle and the other in 10-meter Women’s Team Air Rifle.

The competition will wrap up on October 25. See the full results of the 2022 ISSF World Championship in Cairo, Egypt, here. Learn more about USA Shooting at
