Cardigan, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2016 -- Recent events at the Rio Olympics have left many shocked, with Ginny Thrasher, aged just nineteen winning Gold in the 10-meter air rifle event. Beating previous, much older medallists Chinese Du Li and Yi Siling, the teenager from Virginia, USA performed better than she could have ever imagined and thoroughly impressed all.
Picking up her first gun just five years ago whilst hunting with her grandfather, Ginny quickly decided that being an Olympic figure skater, which was her previous dream, was no longer for her, and that instead she would focus and put her efforts into shooting. The beating of 34 year old veteran Du Li highlights that she made the correct choice.
A spokesperson from UK air rifle supplier Sports Guns was keen to comment on Thrasher's recent win saying, "It is really great to see someone so young taking Gold in this event as it proves that the sport is great for the younger generation. Following this we anticipate that many young people from all over the world are going to take up shooting, which we here at Sports Guns think would be truly amazing. Here at Sports Guns we are so passionate about shooting that we offer free advice to all of our customers and also offer guns and air rifles that are priced affordably, allowing all to purchase their first guns without breaking the bank."
