USA Shooting junior athletes will head to Changwon, Korea, from July 14-25, to compete in the 2023 International Shooting Sports Federation Junior World Championship.

An ISSF junior athlete is classified as an athlete 21 and under. Athletes will remain juniors until December 31 of the year in which they become 21 years of age. Any athlete born between the January 1 and the December 31, will cease to be a junior on December 31 of that year.

In 2022, junior athletes brought home a total of nine medals at the ISSF World Championship, three gold, one silver and five bronze. They also saw many notable top 10 finishes after making a handful of finals.

The junior athletes also had a strong showing at the 2022 Championship of the Americas Games. Suman Sanghera earned a gold medal and an Olympic quota for the United States in Women’s 10m Air Pistol, while Katie Zaun earned a bronze medal in Women’s 50m 3-Position Rifle.

The ISSF 2022 World Championship also included open age categories. At the previous ISSF Junior World Championship held in 2021, Team USA earned a grand total of 21 medals—seven gold, eight silver and six bronze.
