Precision shooting, which is what the Summer
Olympics sport is all about, has many different
categories and classes, including rifle and pistol.
There are different positions and combinations in
precision shooting. Some shooters concentrate on
certain positions while others compete in “three
position,” which includes shooting from standing,
kneeling and prone positions.
The Winter Olympics biathlon combines cross-country skiing and three position. Being from
Florida, Yoke has competed in a biathlon that
combined running and shooting. “I can say that’s
pretty difficult,” Yoke says.
The Purdue Armory is home to one of the largest
collegiate indoor shooting ranges in the nation.
