This past weekend wrapped up the competition at the IPSC World Shoot in Rhodes, Greece, and shooters from America dominated the leaderboards. Competitors from the United States took home 23 individual medals, with eight of them being gold. They also picked up nine team medals, for a grand total of 32 medals, more than any other country represented. Both male and female U.S. competitors helped rack up the medal count across the different divisions, but for right now, let's here it for the boys. Here's a look at the guys who picked up medals in their respective division and/or age group:
