Team EOTAC's Robert Vogel Brings Home Gold and Bronze
WEST COLUMBIA, South Carolina –-(TheOutdoorWire.com)- Team EOTAC's Robert Vogel won the team gold medal and the individual bronze medal in the Production Pistol division at the International Practical Shooting Confederation's (IPSC) World Shoot XV held October 26 through November 2 in Bali, Indonesia.
Vogel, who is the reigning U.S. Practical Shooting Association national champion, finished third overall in a field of 282 to claim the individual Bronze medal. His final score of 2368.0915 put him 138 points out of first and just under four points out of second.
In the team competition, Vogel competed as a member of the official U.S. squad where he joined with three fellow Team USA shooters to outpace the silver medal squad from the Czech Republic by 231 points. The Slovak Republic claimed bronze finishing 529 points behind the U.S.
“Competition in the Production division was fierce and looking back I can see where I missed a couple opportunities. I was honored to have been selected to represent the United States in international competition, and while I was obviously hoping to take gold, I'm very pleased I could bring home the bronze and help the team,” said Vogel.
A total of 30 gold medals between team and individual competition were awarded at the World Shoot. The U.S.'s 10 gold medals were more than twice that of its nearest competitor, Italy, which finished with four. The Czech Republic and Ecuador tied for third with three golds each.
Vogel's 2008 shooting performance has made him a standout in the sport of Practical Shooting. With key wins in the Area 5 Championships, the USPSA National Championships and a strong showing on the international stage, Vogel is now ranked among the very best shooters in America making him an obvious favorite going into the 2009 season.
“This has been a big year for Team EOTAC and Bob has led the way. We're extremely proud to have him on our shooting team and congratulate him on an outstanding performance at the World Shoot,” said Fernando Coelho, president of EOTAC.
“We look forward to the 2009 season when Bob and the rest of our team will be carrying the EOTAC banner into competition once again,” added Coelho.
