Earning a spot on the U.S. Olympic shooting team takes more than winning one match, but it certainly helps toward Olympic aspirations when a shooter walks away with multiple gold medals at one of the most important matches along the way.

Team Winchester’s Dania Vizzi ascended to the center of the podium at a World Cup tournament of the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF)—a qualification path to participation in the Olympic shooting events—in Lima, Peru, which took place March 27 to April 7 2022. The U.S. team topped the medal count, with Team Winchester bringing home its share of the gold.
 
Vizzi’s stellar performance resulted in two gold medals—women’s skeet, beating out a fellow American shooter by a single target. Then she and her women’s team skeet squad went on to defeat the Italian team decisively in the final. Vizzi notched two of Team USA’s four recorded gold medals. Men’s team trap sent Casey “Jake” Wallace and his squad into a shootout with always-formidable Spain, where they won the gold by a single target. 

“We at Winchester are extremely proud of Dania and Jake for their victories in Lima, and the performance of Team Winchester this World Cup season,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “It is extremely impressive to watch Team Winchester members compete against the world’s best sport shooters and come out on top.”
