Winchester, USA Shooting Extend Partnership Beyond 2012 London Olympics
Big-time competition calls for big-time players, which is why Winchester Ammunition and the USA Shooting Shotgun Team will take on the world's toughest competitors, together, for the next five years. Winchester Ammunition has been the exclusive ammunition sponsor of the USA Shooting Shotgun Team since 1999, supporting the team in all major worldwide competitions.
"Winchester is honored to be the official ammunition of the USA Shooting Shotgun Team in competition and a supporter of their efforts in the community," said Dick Hammett, president of Winchester Ammunition. "Extending this relationship beyond the London Olympics in 2012 speaks highly of our commitment to each other and toward promoting the shooting sports."
In 2008, the USA Shooting Shotgun Team recorded the most medals won by any country-four-taking on the toughest competition in the world with Winchester AA ammunition.
"A partnership like we have with Winchester Ammunition is very special in this day and age," said Buddy DuVall, director of marketing for USA Shooting. "Winchester's constant support of our team helps us represent this great country in competitions all over the world. We are very proud to shoot Winchester ammunition."
