U.S. Wins First Gold Medal of Rio Games in 10m Air Rifle

Ginny Thrasher, a 19-year-old Virginia native, won the United States' first gold medal of the 2016 Rio Olympics on Saturday, competing in the 10-meter air rifle. Thrasher bested stiff competition from the Chinese and Serbian teams to score a huge upset victory.

Coming in to the competition ranked 23rd in the world, neither the Associated Press nor Sports Illustrated picked Thrasher to win a medal of any color, never mind gold.

Thrasher is currently a member of WVU's champion rifle team. She was the first freshman ever to sweep both air rifle individual NCAA titles.

Congrats Ginny!
