Brown Shines Again In Munich World Cup

What can Brown do for you?

Well, for USA Shooting, Will Brown (Twin Falls, Idaho) is deliv- ering renewed hope and energy to a pistol program anxious for a new star. Brown broke through in a

big way during the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup USA in Ft. Ben- ning, Ga. in May after winning a gold medal in his signature event, Men’s 10m Air Pistol. For an encore at the following World Cup, he earned a trip to the Fi- nals of the Men’s 50m Free Pis- tol event in Munich, Germany. Sixteen days after shooting a 544 in the Free Pistol event in Ft. Benning, Brown shot 16 points higher in Munich for a world-class score of 560, to earn another trip to the fi nals in consecutive World Cup events. Brown fi nished seventh overall in his fi rst trip to a World Cup Final in what many believe to be the hardest Olympic shooting disci- pline.

Brown’s hard work and dedi- cation are certainly paying off during World Cup competition and while he’ll be satisfi ed with the results in making his fi rst fi nal in 50m Free Pistol, he knows there’s still a lot of work to be done.

He fi nished 19th

overall today in the 10m Air Pistol event shooting two points lower than his qualifying score in Georgia. Also, having a breakout

medalist Dempster Christenson (Sioux Falls, S.D.) wouldn’t fare as well in Munich, shooting 7.3 points lower in qualifying than he did on his way to making the fi rst World Cup fi nal of his career earlier this month.


performance was Kelsey Emme (Rapid City, S.D.) in Women’s 10m Air Rifl e after fi nishing 13th in her fi rst career World Cup match. Emme competed against 126 other air rifl e competitors and was just 1.2 points away from making fi nals. Emme just fi nished her sophomore cam- paign for the Murray State Rac- ers under head coach Alan Lollar. In Men’s 10m Air Rifl e, Con-

nor Davis (Shelbyville, Ky.) shot 1/10th of a point off the score that would have got him into the Finals of World Cup USA had he not be entered as an “ex-

tra” shooter, but that score this time wasn’t nearly good enough amongst a talented fi eld as he’d fi nish in 26th position over- all with a score of 623.7. The 623.8 he shot in Ft. Benning would have qualifi ed him fourth overall. Two consistent marks in his fi rst two World Cup events along a fourth-place fi nish at the NCAA Rifl e Championships and a Junior Olympic champion- ship in recent months provided a huge boost of confi dence to the Kentucky Wildcat who went on to take the Men’s 10m Air Rifl e title at the USA Shooting National
