Today we're on the shooting
range with Paralympian McKenna Geer. McKenna is a Paralympic bronze
medalist in the sport of rifle shooting. At Rio she competed in the
R4 - Mixed 10m Air Rifle Standing SH2 and earned 24th place and the
R5 – Mixed 10m Air Rifle Prone SH2, where she took home the bronze
medal. We talked with McKenna about how rifle works on the
Paralympic side of the sport.
Follow McKenna on Facebook, Insta and Twitter - and cheer for her this week as she competes at the World Cup event in Lima, which is the last qualification opportunity for the Tokyo Paralympics.
What are our TKFLASTANIs up to this week? We've got news from:
Plus, tons of news from Tokyo 2020 (including an Atlanta 1996-related moment!) and the International Olympic Committee. Guess what? More medal reallocations due to doping - can you guess which sport is responsible for some of them?
Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!
