Tigers Rifle, Olympic Bound

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A Tiger is Olympic bound in 2020!

Alison (Ali) Weisz, a graduate assistant coach for the University of Memphis rifle team, earned a Team USA spot with her performance at the Olympic Air Rifle Trials Part II last weekend.

Weisz is one of four shooters that will represent the United States in the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, in late July-early August. The other three U.S. rifle Olympians are Lucas Kozeniesky, Will Shaner and Mary Tucker.

"I was excited to see Ali close out her final match," said Memphis third-year head coach Dan Hermsmeier.
