COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.--(Ammoland.com)- The United States’ top shooters are invited to compete in the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Final.

Jamie Beyerle, one of America’s top rifle athletes, boasts a resume that includes three medals and a quota place in Women’s 50m Rifle Three Position and yet another medal in Women’s 10m Air Rifle . . . all during 2010.

Beyerle (Lebanon, Pa.) was invited to compete in the 2010 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup Final in both the Women’s 10m Air Rifle and Women’s 50m Rifle Three Position events. Shooting against some of the best athletes in the world, Beyerle beat all expectations.

In her first day of competition, she entered the final in the lower half of the field with 396 match points. A strong final of 103.2 points left Beyerle tied with Italy’s Elani Nardelli for the bronze medal at 499.2 points. In the shoot-off, Beyerle succeeded with a 10.5 point single shot to Nardelli’s 9.8 point shot.

The next day, Beyerle once again brought her medal winning ways to the Women’s 50m Rifle Three Position event. She finished the qualification round with 590 points, tied with only one other shooter. Beyerle beat the competition as she shot for 100.7 points in the final to win the gold medal with 690.7 total points.

National Rifle Coach Major Dave Johnson said, “She’s been shooting great and working towards this success for a long time. It’s nice to finally see things coming together. I’m looking forward to see her accomplishing planned goals for the quad in the future.”
