In a depth-enhancing move, Winchester has added two-time world champion skeet shooter Dania Vizzi to their lineup. The first female to ever win both the Junior World Champion title (in 2014), and the World Champion Title (in 2017), Dania will now be crushing clays with Winchester AA shotshell ammunition, and serve as a brand ambassador for the ammo manufacturer.

According to Matt Campbell, the vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition, “Dania has demonstrated that she is committed to competing against the world’s best shooters, and winning.” This strong declaration of support may actually be an understatement, as Dania declined an offer from the Juilliard Dance Intensive in New York City to focus on her shooting career. The move paid off however, as Winchester Ammunition is now, “proud to support Dania in her pursuit for continued success as a sport shooter as well as an ambassador for our brand and the shooting sports industry.”

In the words of Dania herself, “I am very excited to continue my shooting career with Winchester, one of the most iconic and innovative brands in the world. The opportunity to represent the shooting sports industry, my team and Winchester is extremely important to me. Ammunition is one of the most important pieces of equipment I train with on a day to day basis and shooting Winchester gives me the confidence I need on the range.”
