NSSF Lauds Olympic Shooters in USA Today Ad
NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation is celebrating the achievements of three USA Shooting Team women who won medals at the Summer Olympic Games in a full-page ad that appears in today’s edition of the USA Today newspaper.
The ad says, “Congratulations to the USA Shooting Team and Our Three Olympic Medalists,” and features photographs of Ginny Thrasher, gold medal winner in 10m air rifle; Kim Rhode, bronze medalist in women’s skeet and first summer Olympian to medal in six consecutive Olympic Games; and Corey Cogdell-Unrein, bronze medalist in women’s trap.
The ad also features a photograph of the entire U.S. Olympic Shooting Team and accompanying text, “Our USA Shooting athletes are among the world’s elite, but the shooting sports are for everyone. Join the millions of American who safely enjoy recreational shooting,” following by the link to NSSF’s online database of thousands of shooting ranges across the country, WheretoShoot.org.
NSSF, which has drawn attention to past Olympic shooting medal winners in similar ads, is a proud supporter of USA Shooting, the non-profit organization that is the national governing body for the sport of shooting. USA Shooting supports the national team and prepares athletes to compete in the Olympics and Paralympics.
