Six USA Shooting Team members earned 2016 Olympic Team nominations based upon points they earned for outstanding performances in 2015 World Cup competition, the Shotgun World Championships, World Cup Finals and Selection Match events.

The top ten athletes in each discipline from the first part of the U. Olympic Team Trials for Airgun in December 2015 earned a spot to compete in Camp Perry, as long as they also had the Minimum Qualifying Score (MQS) from an ISSF-sanctioned event.

Those who did not find themselves in the top 10 or were unable to compete at the first part of the U. Olympic Team Trials got a second chance at a “last chance” match May 13 – 15 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

From that match, an additional seven rifle athletes (three men, four women) and three pistol (one woman, two men) earned the right to advance to Camp Perry.

Four first-time Olympians punched their tickets to Rio during the U. Olympic Team Trials for Airgun including Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia) and Dan Lowe (U. Army Marksmanship/Olympia, Washington) in Men’s Air Rifle, Lydia Paterson (Kansas City, Kansas) in Women’s Air Pistol and Will Brown (Twin Falls, Idaho) in Men’s Air Pistol.

(Woburn, Massachusetts) was the only athlete to earn a repeat Olympic appearance with her win in Women’s Air Rifle.

Though Scherer has been sidelined for nearly two years with two back surgeries that almost forced her out of the sport, she’s declared she’s ready to compete once again with her two Finals appearances at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup in Bangkok, Thailand, along with an Olympic Trials win.

Kozeniesky, a senior at NC State University, mathematically had one of the two Men’s Air Rifle slots locked down prior to the last day's Final with dominating, world-class Qualification scores each of the three days of competition.

Lowe was in third place overall at the conclusion of the final day's Qualification, but when Ivan Roe (Manhattan, Montana) who was in second place overall failed to qualify for the last day's Final, that left the door open for Lowe to win the requisite additional points as he picked up eight points with his Finals win to secure the second quota slot. On Paterson’s first day alone in Qualification, she shot a world-class score of 387 – nine points higher than her closest competitor.

Though the following days’ scores weren’t quite as high, winning all three of the Finals helped assure Paterson of the comfortable lead.
