In addition to Olympians, both British and Jungman soldiers serve as members of the US Army Marksmanship Unit.

English, who set an Olympic record and won a gold medal in Tokyo, clinched her skeet title by beating Sam Simonton in the final with one goal. Simonton, a 2020 Olympic alternative, shot a 245 out of 250 in qualifying, which was the women’s highest score, and gave her the best starting number in the final.

Jungman took his second National Shotgun Title with a qualifying result of 246 out of 250 targets. After completing the fire course, Jungman was hooked up with AMU teammate Christian Elliot, who put the men in a 20-round shootout with sudden death. It was Jungman who took gold and the national title in the end. Elliot had to settle for silver, while Mark Staffen took bronze, which gave the US Army Marksmanship Unit a podium at the skeet events.
