When 19-year-old Ginny Thrasher first picked up a rifle five years ago, she just wanted to go deer hunting with her grandfather. But on Saturday, Thrasher shot her way to the first American gold medal in the Rio de Janeiro Olympic games.
She won her gold in the women’s 10 meter air-rifle finals, one of the most precise sports in the Olympic games, upsetting the top-ranked Andrea Arsovic (Serbia) and defending champion Siling Yi (China). In the final, she knocked out 2-time gold medalist (2004, 2008) Li Du (China).Some people just can't help being assholes. It's a good thing we have Twitter to help identify them.
But then the haters started in:
@TeamUSA @USAShooting make sense the usa's first gold is gun related— Johnny Wack (@JohnnyWack1) August 6, 2016
If you think Ginny Thrasher was impressive in 10m Shooting, wait til you see how the American team dominates in Mass Shooting. #Olympics— Brian Ste. Marie (@briansantamaria) August 6, 2016
