With the Olympics coming up in August in Brazil, Lt. Col. Bret Tecklenburg said he expects the Army to excel in the shooting events.

Three Soldiers have already made the U.S. Olympic team and Tecklenburg said more are likely to follow. “We expect to earn at least two medals in Rio,” he said.

The Army typically fields about a third of the shooters on the U.S. Olympic team, said Tecklenburg, who is the commander of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, or USAMU, at Fort Benning, Georgia.

The Army’s contribution to the Olympics is especially important, he added, because U.S. shooters bring in more Olympic gold medals than any other sport except for track and field and swimming — and that’s mainly because those two sports have more events.
