“American shooter Ginny Thrasher won the first gold medal of the Rio Olympics, pulling off an upset in the women’s 10-meter air rifle event Saturday morning. Thrasher, 19, beat silver medalist Du Li of China in the final round with a total of 208.0, setting an Olympic record in the finals. Du finished with 207.0.” The NCAA champ wasn’t among the favorites for a medal. It’s the first women’s gold in air rifle since 2000 and the third ever. We’re sure our friends at Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action will lift a glass with us to toast America’s new golden girl.
