Team SIG professional shooter Lena Miculek has once again defended her Ladies Standard World Shotgun title at the IPSC World Shotgun Championship, held December 3-10, 2023 in Pattaya, Thailand. This is the third time Miculek has earned this title.
In addition to earning the top award among women, Miculek placed thirteenth amongst all standard competitors (men and women). She is the only woman to ever break into the top 20 at an IPSC Shotgun World Shoot, was the highest scoring female amongst all female competitors in all divisions to include modified and open competitors, and won the ladies standard shoot-off. In total, Miculek earned a total of three gold medals at the IPSC Shotgun World Shoot.
“The competition Lena put together at the World Shoot was a remarkable performance and we are all incredibly proud of her amazing achievements,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales, SIG Sauer, Inc. “Lena’s success in Thailand is a direct result of her hard work and dedication to her training and commitment to her craft. In addition to defending her title she set a series of lofty goals for herself; she crushed them all and once again raised the bar for females in professional shooting. It’s an honor to have Lena as a member of Team SIG and a representation of the SIG Sauer brand to the world.”
Lena Miculek, the top multi-discipline professional shooter in the world, entered the world of competitive shooting when she was 8 and was immediately a force to be reckoned with. At 17 she won her first World Champion title, and now has nine World Shooting titles in five different shooting disciplines and over 100 championship wins and national titles in which she competes. Miculek is recognized in the industry as the most-influential female competitor, and recently used her experience to develop the ROSE by SIG Sauer program to help, encourage, and inspire women to take on the responsibility of their own personal safety through education, training and community.
