Junior Shooters may get chance at Olympic Gold

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Some future Olympic sharpshooters could be training now in south Georgia. Colquitt County's South Georgia Youth Shooting Club recently brought home ten medals.

Including two team national championships from the Junior Olympics competition in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

" There's a lot of scholarships, Harvard has a scholarship for this and 30 other colleges in the United States have them as well," says team member Tyler Lirio.

The Junior Olympics is impressive enough, but these young marksmen have their sights set on the real deal Olympics.

The squad will head to Texas next month to compete in the first round of the U-S Olympic team selection process.
