From April 14-16, U.S. Shooting Olympic medalists Will Shaner, Ginny Thrasher and Brian Burrows will be making appearances at the USA Shooting booth (#2802) during the 2023 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

All three Olympic medalists will be available for photos and autographs at the booth for USA Shooting, which is the National Governing Body for Olympic and Paralympic shooting sports.

Will Shaner is a 2020 Tokyo Olympics gold medalist in Men’s 10m Air Rifle. Shaner currently competes for the rifle team at the University of Kentucky and is a four-time All-American athlete. Last month, Shaner landed a second place finish at the 2023 NCAA Smallbore Rifle Championship.

Ginny Thrasher is a 2016 Rio Olympics gold medalist in Women’s 10m Air Rifle. She won the first gold medal for the United States at the Rio Olympic Games. Thrasher trains at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The West Virginia University graduate enjoys educating and entertaining folks about the world of competitive shooting on her social media platforms (@GinnyThrasher).

Brian Burrows is a 2020 Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist in the Mixed Trap Team event. Burrows earned his medal alongside teammate Madelynn Bernau. Burrows, a Fallbrook, Calif., native, is a two-time Pan American games medalist and three-time national champion. He started shooting in trap competitions at the young age of eight.

In addition, Michael Tagliapietra, a 2016 Rio Paralympian, along with Chance Cover, a USA Shooting Rifle Developmental Team athlete, will be representing USA Shooting at the booth.

All of the aforementioned athletes excelled in their shooting careers with the support of USA Shooting, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that receives no government funding.
