COLO SPRGS, CO (Nov. 9, 2022) – USA Shooting athletes continue to excel at XIII CAT Championship in Lima, Peru, after earning five medals and two U.S. Olympic quotas for Paris 2024 all in one day of competition, Nov. 8.
Brandon Muske earned gold and an Olympic quota for the U.S. in the Men’s 10m Air Rifle event.
The USA swept the podium in Women’s 10m Air Rifle. Sagen Maddalena took home gold after facing Mary Tucker in the gold medal match. Tucker earned silver and Ali Weisz earned bronze. Tucker earned the U.S. a quota in the event because Maddalena already earned a U.S. quota in Women’s 50m Smallbore at the 2022 World Championship. Athletes are only eligible to earn one quota in a four-year Olympic cycle.
The Men’s Skeet Team were crowned champions after beating Chile in the gold medal match. Benjamin Keller, Christian Elliot, and Dustan Taylor shared the top spot on the podium.
USA Shooting has earned a total of five Olympic quotas and 13 medals while competing at the CAT Championship so far.
The rifle, pistol, and shotgun athletes still have a handful of events to compete in at the CAT Championship. Follow along @USAShooting on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest results.
