From USA Shooting - Brown Scores U.S. Olympic Quota on Final Shot

GUADALAJARA, Mexico (October 13, 2014)

Colorado Springs, Colorado - Will Brown (Twin Falls, Idaho) was unnerved on his final shot and the result was a win and an Olympic quota to start things right for the USA Shooting Team competing at the Championship of the Americas in Guadalajara, Mexico.  Brown becomes the first rifle and/or pistol athlete for the USA Shooting Team to earn an Olympic quota.

Down .3 of a point going into the his final shot of the Air Pistol finals and with an Olympic quota on the line, Brown, the 2013 World Cup USA gold medalist, calmly stepped forth, put aside all the distraction being generated from the Cuban entourage cheering on Cuban shooter Jorge Grau, and shot a 10.2. Grau would follow with a 8.8, providing all the satisfaction to Brown and his USA Shooting teammates.
