PR NET February 12, 2018 – More than 60 athletes from four countries will descend on the Olympic Shooting Center to compete in the Robert Mitchell Rifle Championships starting Wednesday and concluding Sunday at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

The annual rifle-only match welcomes competitors from across the United States, Mexico, Canada and Brazil to compete in Men’s and Women’s Air and Three-Position Rifle events. This year’s Robert Mitchell Rifle Championships will be the first match where USA Shooting is utilizing the new International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) rules in which men and women will shoot the same number of competition shots in each event.COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (February 12, 2018) – More than 60 athletes from four countries will descend on the Olympic Shooting Center to compete in the Robert Mitchell Rifle Championships starting Wednesday and concluding Sunday at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

The men’s field features five Olympians; including three-time Olympic medalist Matt Emmons (Browns Mills, New Jersey), his 2016 Olympic teammates Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia) and Michael McPhail (US Army Marksmanship Unit/Darlington, Wisconsin), as well as 2012 pistol Olympian Nick Mowrer (Butte, Montana). McPhail, a former Prone specialist, has moved his focus to Three-Position Rifle upon the elimination of Prone from the Olympic program. Mowrer – who shoots pistol and rifle regularly in competition – will make his international Air Rifle debut in this match. Mowrer has shot Three-Position and Prone Rifle in previous matches, including winning a bronze medal at the ISSF World Cup in Fort Benning, Georgia in 2014. 2015 Pan American Games champion Cassio Rippel of Brazil completes the field of male Olympians competing at this match.

The women’s side of the competition will feature rising talent, including 2017 Women’s Air Rifle National Champion Alison Weisz (Belgrade, Montana), 2012 Olympian Rosa Pena of Mexico, 2017 Fall Selection Champion Rachel Martin (Peralta, New Mexico) and 17-year-old Angeline Henry (Fort Worth, Texas), who just two weeks ago won the first day of competition of the H&N Cup (formerly known as Bavarian Airgun), as well as the Meyton Cup in Austria.

This match is named for Robert Mitchell, who helped build USA Shooting from its infancy as a National Governing Body through his 30-year career with the organization. He spent time as the National Team Coach, Director of Operations and Chief Executive Officer.  During his retirement ceremony in August 2016, the USA Shooting staff announced that they were renaming this match from the Rocky Mountain Rifle Championship in his honor. The match originated under Mitchell back in 1986 when he was National Rifle Coach.
