SCI Olympian Corey Cogdell

SCI-sponsored Olympic shooter, Corey Cogdell, was born in Alaska and grew up shooting and hunting with her father. She joined her local 4-H Club shooting program, and from there went on to train for Olympic-style trapshooting.

As an accomplished trapshooter, Cogdell became the first American woman to ever win an Olympic medal in her sport. In 2008, she was the only member of the Olympic Women’s Trapshooting Team, and in Bejing won Team USA’s first shooting medal of the Olympics—the bronze in Women’s Trap.
