One of the world's most decorated female shooters talks injury recovery and her passion for the sport

Professional competitive shooter Vera Koo

For those of you new to the world of shooting sports, Vera Koo is a certifiable legend. Owning eight Women's titles from the prestigious Bianchi Cup and two from the World Action Pistol Championship, there's no question that Vera knows what she's doing. Her most recent win came in the form of a team gold medal at the 2012 NRA World Action Pistol Championship in Germany.

Vera has nothing left to prove to anybody and is so passionate about the sport that she continues to shoot; even after overcoming an injury that would force many to retire. Unfortunately, Vera sustained another such injury this past winter, but is hard at work rehabbing to join the ranks at this May's MidwayUSA/NRA Bianchi Cup and continue being a professional competitive shooter.
