Healthy, Happy And Honed In, Shooter Matt Emmons Targets Fourth Olympic Games


Below is an excerpt from a story that appeared on TeamUSA.org After his most recent Olympic Games at London in 2012, Matt Emmons decided it was time to address some issues. Though he’d been a successful Olympian, winning a bronze medal in London to go with a gold from Athens in 2004 and a silver from Beijing in 2008, he believed he needed to make some changes to stay competitive. To begin with, his back was killing him. He discovered he had a bulging disk and muscle imbalances — problems he


just powered through in his quest for the London Games. After London he spent six months rehabilitating his back and correcting his posture to avoid future problems. Then, last year, he made some big equipment changes, switching to a new rifl e and ammunition. “I just couldn’t get a gun in my hands that was competitive,” he said. “And if your equipment’s just not good enough


to win, then it’s going to be hard to be successful no matter how good you are physically. It’s like a skier being on the slowest skis you can get.” Emmons also decided to sharpen his mental approach.
