COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (June 4, 2018)
Seven of America’s best shotgun athletes have signed exclusive pro staff agreements with Federal Premium Ammunition as the company forges new pathways for America’s elite shotgun team.
Two-time Olympic gold medalist Vincent Hancock will serve as Federal Premium Ammunition brand ambassador as previously announced May 21 (see release). Joining Hancock on this select squad will be three-time Olympian and two-time Olympic bronze medalist Corey Cogdell-Unrein (Eagle River, Alaska), current World record holder Jake Wallace (Castaic, California), current Junior World Champion Katie Jacob (Rochester, Michigan), three-time U.S. Trap champion Ashley Carroll (Solvang, California), five-time World Cup silver medalist Caitlin Connor (Winnfield, Louisiana) and seven-time U.S. Championship medalist Kayle Browning-Thomas.
“We’re very proud to be part of Team USA and can’t wait to tell the story of these amazing athletes,” said Federal Premium Senior Marketing Director Jason Nash. “This team represents the best competitors and the future of our shooting sports.”
Hancock is a three-time World Champion, the first American shotgun athlete ever to do so. His impressive shooting resume also includes two Olympic gold medals, nine World Cup gold medals, and two golds at the Pan American Games. He is also a decorated military veteran. Hancock served as a sergeant in the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and was awarded two Meritorious Service Medals, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, and Distinguished International Shooter Badge.
In addition to her multiple Olympic medals in three straight appearances, Cogdell-Unrein has earned eight World Cup medals over the course of her career. Her robust social media following and sport presence made her an ideal choice for pro staff consideration.
