It has been a wild year, but the re-scheduled Summer Olympics are nearly here. Athletes from all over the world are flocking to Tokyo, Japan for the 2020/21 Summer Olympics. One of those athletes is a Montana woman by the name of Ali Weisz. Ali is a member of the US Army Marksmanship Unit. At the age of 26, Ali is accomplishing her dream of competing on the world's stage.

According to

Weisz heads to Tokyo in a few weeks, but once the games begin she won’t have much time before she’s actually competing. She will be the first event after the opening ceremony. Back in 2019, Weisz competed near the end of the Pan-American games, which added extra pressure she had never experienced before.

Ali is competing in the air rifle event at the Olympic games later this month. The shooting events at the Summer games are one of the original nine events that were featured at the 1896 Olympics in Athens, Greece.

According to the Olympics website

10m Air Rifle: Shooters fire 60 shots at the target within a timeframe of one hour and 15 minutes, following which, the eight highest-scoring shooters battle it out for the medals.

The Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony will take place Friday July 23rd. Ali's first shooting match will take place Saturday July 24th. Let's all tune in and watch our fellow Montanan "take aim" at Olympic gold.
