Federal Ammunition has announced that Olympic gold medalist Amber English has joined Team Federal. The record-setting English won the Women’s Skeet competition at the summer 2020 Tokyo Olympics while representing the United States.
“We are extremely happy to have Amber join our Federal Team," said Federal’s Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash. "It was exciting to watch her perform at the highest level in Tokyo, and we anticipate that same level of performance as she joins our roster of world class competitors.”
English, who recently concluded her service with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and World Class Athlete Program, said, “I cannot believe I can live out my dream and represent the best ammo company in the world.” She added that serving in the U.S. Army provided “the exact tools" she needed to win.
English reached the pinnacle of her competitive career with a record-setting performance, shooting a 56 in the Women’s Skeet finals and became only the second woman in U.S. history to medal in the discipline.
“My favorite memory of my gold medal performance was making myself stick to what was going to make me complete the ‘task at hand’ until every target broke,” said English. “I knew on the last station I had to hit two of the four to tie, and if I hit one more I won. Making myself hit that last target was something I'll never forget. When the match was over, I couldn't believe we were actually done!”
English says she is excited to continue to compete using Federal’s Gold Medal Papers, her ammunition of choice, and has current plans to make up for lost time in the outdoors.
