SCI-sponsored two-time Olympian and 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Corey Cogdell (Eagle River, Alaska) will be part of a six-member squad competing Saturday as the 2012 International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup Final for Shotgun in Maribor, Slovenia.

Cogdell is hopeful to put results of a bad final round in London [2012 Olympics] behind her and showcase the skills that led her to an Olympic bronze medal in Beijing as well as the World Cup win she earned at the Tucson World Cup in March.

“It is always such an honor to compete in the World Cup Finals as one of the top 12 in the world,” said Cogdell.  “I’m looking forward to wrapping up my World Cup season with a strong performance.”

Joining Cogdell in the talented women’s trap field is Kayle Browning (Wooster, Arkansas) who finished second to Cogdell for an Olympic selection.  Browning earned her way to Maribor after earning a career first World Cup medal at the London Prepares event in April.   The wind, rain and cold conditions of London couldn’t detract Browning from recording the top performance of her career as the Arkansas native earned a bronze medal.

SCI Defends Olympic Shooter After Personal Threats by Anti-Hunting Radicals

Washington, D.C. – “As President of Safari Club International (SCI) I would like to express SCI’s support for Olympic Trap Shooter and SCI Member, Corey Cogdell, who will represent the U.S. Shooting team tomorrow in London. While the anti-hunting community has recently scrutinized, and even threatened, Ms. Cogdell over images from an African hunt that she posted to a social media account, the images are a true depiction of how she continues to represent hunters across the globe, promoting species conservation in local communities, such as Africa. Ms. Cogdell is a positive role model for all American hunters and, again, SCI wishes her all the best in bringing home an Olympic medal.”
