Team USA rifle and pistol athletes left their mark at the 2022 World Cup in Cairo, Egypt, held from February 26 to March 8, bringing home a bronze medal in Women's 10-meter Air Rifle and also a silver in Women's 50-meter Rifle 3-Position Team.

Spc. Ali Weisz of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and a 2020 Olympian, shot a 630 in Women’s 10-meter Air Rifle qualification, earning herself a spot in the final. She went on to win the bronze medal with a score of 39.5, making this her second World Cup medal. Previously, Spc. Weisz won a silver medal at last year’s World Cup.

“Overall I had a really great performance at this World Cup, said Spc. Weisz, a native of Belgrade, Montana. “There were a lot of really strong athletes with some intense scores. I’m looking forward to the next competitions.”

The Women's 50-meter Rifle 3-Position team, consisting of 2020 Olympic medalist Mary Tucker, Spc. Sagen Maddalena (another AMU and Olympic shooter) and Katie Zaun, also garnered silver medals competing against the Slovenian team in the gold medal final. The final score was 17-15. They were competing on the same range that the 2022 World Championships will be held at later this year.

“We had some outstanding performances,” said Peter Durben, USA Shooting national rifle coach. “The experience gained at this cup will help prepare us for the world championships in October.”
