Shooting for Glory Part #2 on “It’s Federal Season” Podcast

The “It’s Federal Season” podcast wraps up its two-part series talking with members of USA Shooting as they prepare for the Olympics in Japan this summer.  On this episode, Women’s Skeet team member Austen Smith and Women’s Trap team member Kayle Browning join the discussion as they prepare for the world’s largest competitive stage.

Episode #22 “Shooting for Glory Part #2”

Austen Smith, just a teenager from Texas, talks about her meteoric rise in the Women’s International Skeet division and about realizing her dream of making the Olympic team.  “I was in shock at what I accomplished,” stated the nineteen-year-old Smith.  “Besides competing, I’m looking forward to the opening ceremonies as it’s also my birthday,” said the first time Olympian. 

Kayle Browning was an alternate on the 2012 team and has had success internationally at the Pan American Games as well as multiple World Cups.  This once in a lifetime opportunity is still exciting to the veteran.  “I can’t wait to get over to Japan and represent the United States to the best of my ability,” stated Browning.  “We have great shotgun teams and look forward to bringing home a lot of medals for the U.S.A.”

“This is an exceptional discussion,” said Jason Nash, Vice President of Marketing for Federal Ammunition.  “Both these competitors have great stories to tell and provide some background on their journeys, explain their games in great depth, and have some really good advice on how to improve your shooting.”
