Martha Hall will be one of approximately 70 competitors at the 18th annual National Junior Olympic three-position Small Bore Rifle Competition. The match will be held at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs on April 1 thru April 4. This is an invitation- only event conducted by USA Shooting, the organization which has oversight for the qualification events for all United States Olympic shooting teams. Hall’s invitation came as the result of scores fired in the state Junior Olympic match held in Wake County last December. Hall was the gold medalist in three-position small bore and silver medalist in international air rifle.
In addition to the experience of competing with the best in the nation, the athletes will be showcasing their skills for Olympic team members and coaches. Also, the first and second place winners receive a slot on the Junior Development Team moving them a step closer to qualifying for the US Olympic Team.
