We love it when we at NRA Women can boast “we knew her when.” Such is the case with the recent championship win by Team Federal, as its outstanding competitors captured three gold medals and a silver at the Lonato World Cup in Lonato, Italy, held April 19-30, 2022. The competition is considered to have the deepest and toughest talent of the World Cup events—and Team Federal’s Caitlin Connor had a part in all three of the gold medal performances.

Connor, who was a featured “Rising Star” in 2018 on our sister publication, NRA Family, began shooting at the age of 15 in the 4-H program in Winnfield, Louisiana. She claimed gold in Women’s Skeet, Women’s Team Skeet, and also paired with Team Federal’s three-time Olympic Champion Vincent Hancock to win the Mixed Team Skeet. It was the first time the two had teamed together to compete in a World Cup event.

Connor marked her first ever individual title at a World Cup event in the Women’s Skeet finals, defeating a competitor from Great Britain. She then teamed up with Olympic Gold Medalist Amber English and Dania Vizzi to win the Women’s Skeet Team gold medal for Team Federal.

“I would not have been able to get those golds if it weren’t for my teammates,” said Connor. “We have a really strong team, and it was awesome to be part of it.”
