Team USA’s Rylan Kissell, a student-athlete at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, and Katie Zaun, a student-athlete at Texas Christian University, this week captured a pair of bronze medals together at the 2022 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Championships in Cairo, Egypt.

Kissell and Zaun first medal arrived on October 16 after a third place finish in the 50m Rifle Prone Junior Mixed Team event, defeating Nischal Nischal and Surya Pratap of India in the bronze medal match, 16-6.

Next, the American duo earned another smallbore rifle title in the 50m Rifle 3-Position Junior Mixed Team event. Kissell and Zaun secured their medals after beating Hungarian shooters Gitta Bajos and Andras Denes in the bronze medal match, 16-10.

In addition, Kissell won the 2022 ISSF World Championship title in the 50m Rifle 3-Position Junior Men’s Team event with USA Shooting teammates Braden Peiser and Gavin Barnick over the Ukrainian team, 16-10. Kissell’s medal count didn’t stop there, though.

Zaun also competed in more than Mixed Team events at the 2022 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Championships. The Buffalo, North Dakota, native placed fifth in the 50m Rifle 3-Position Junior Women’s event after beating the sixth-place Chinese team.
