The World Cup tournaments of the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) are a qualification path to participation in the Olympic shooting events. And the most recent World Cup in Lima, Peru (March 27-April 7), saw the U.S. topping the medal count, with Team Winchester bringing home its share of the gold.
With the support of legendary AA® shotshells, two of Team Winchester’s best, Dania Vizzi and Casey “Jake” Wallace, ascended to the center of the podiums for their matches.
Dania Vizzi put in a stellar performance medaling in gold twice. First, she won women’s skeet over 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 in Lima, Peru. Men’s team trap sent 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.”
With 11 total medals, the Americans earned nearly twice as many as the next best country, Italy, which won six. Congratulations to all Team USA shooters for their success in Peru. Next on the calendar will be the World Cup in Lonato del Garda, Italy, April 19-30. You can look for Vizzi and Wallace, and Team Winchester, to compete there with their eyes on even more gold.
