    Full results and scores are available at usashooting.org

    TRAP-MEN
    Bret Erickson (USAMU retired from Bennington, Neb. Three time Olympian) and Dominic Grazioli (USAF from Myrtle Beach, S.C.) finished 1st and 2nd respectively

    TRAP-WOMEN
    Corey Cogdell (Eagle River, AK.)

    DOUBLE TRAP
    Glen Eller (USAMU from Katy, Tx) Two time Olympian, and Jeff Holguin (USAMU from Yorba Linda, Ca.)

    SKEET-MEN
    Vincent Hancock (USAMU from Eatonton, Ga.) and Sean McClelland (Mission, TX.)

    SKEET-WOMEN
    Kim Rhode (El Monte, Ca.) Three time Olympic Medalist: Gold '96 in Double Trap, in 2000 Sydney won Bronze and in 2004 won Gold in Athens in Double Trap also.

    Double Trap was eliminated after the 2004 games for women, so Kim switched back to Skeet, which she is no stranger to, having been a Skeet shooter for many years as a youngster.

    All of these events were decided with true dramatic fashion going down to the finals to determine the members of the 2008 Olympic Shotgun Team that will be traveling to Beijing China in August.

    The Team will be competing at a World Cup in Beijing as a warm up to the Olympics in April and then a World Cup in Kerrville, Texas May 2-11. Around 70 countries will be represented in Kerrville, so if you really want to see World Class shooting try to make it to the Texas Hill Country. It is about 60 NW out of San Antonio.

    This Olympic Shotgun Trials match will be seen on the Outdoor Channel in May, check your local listings or with USA shooting for times and dates.

    The film crew only said that they thought it would start on May 2 and continue through until the Olympics start in August. That should give the sport some good coverage. The only time that was mentioned was 6 o'clock, but I neglected to ask if that was EST or even AM or PM. It may be differ in different time zones anyway.
    That is why I would advise everyone to check their local listings or with USAS.

    Julie,


    Thanks so much!! Jeff sure shot lights out and what a final!! 50 straight for those who did not follow the doubles match. Jeff and Glenn Eller both shot very well and will be great representative for the United States.
