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.”
