Scherer Competes At London World Cup
April 27, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas - Sarah Scherer took part in the "London Prepares" International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup this past week. She was one of 32 USA Shooting Team members to take part in the event.
More than 800 competitors from 97 countries participated in the event, more than doubling the amount that will compete at the London Olympic Games, when 390 shooters will have a start on the lines of the Royal Artillery Barracks range.
Taking part in the Women's 10m Air Rifle event, Scherer shot a 394.
"The score was not what she wanted," remarked head coach Karen Monez. "However, the experience and what she learned from the competition as well as the opportunity to shoot at the Olympic Games facility should have a positive impact on her performance in July."
