    At the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) Shotgun World Cup in Slovenia, Rachael Heiden (Clinton, Mich.) delivered an award winning performance in Women’s Trap. Heiden shot 72 qualification targets to tie with four other athletes for three spots in the final.

    Shooting four targets, Heiden and Slovakia’s Zuzana Stefecekova and France’s Delphine Racinet advanced to the final. Heiden attacked the field, hungry for the gold. With the highest final of 23 targets, she surpassed the competition to secure the highest spot on the podium with 95 targets.

    Actually, Kayle Browning won the women's trap division this year. Rachael won the junior division. What a pleasure to watch these young women compete. If only I had the focus they do.

    I was going to post a link to the video but Joe did one better by embedding it. If you can, take the time to watch it. If you want to see a proper follow-though, watch Rachael.

    Also worth noting, if there was a beauty contest involved our girl would win hands down. Just saying.
