GMC’s Helen Oh Represents USA At ISSF World Championship
Georgia Military College rifle team member Helen Oh represented the United States at the 51st International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championship last week in Granada, Spain, and came home with an impressive performance and an unforgettable experience.
Oh competed in the 10m Air Pistol Women’s Junior event and placed 51st with a score of 363.
Oh, who is from Walnut, Calif., and attended John A. Rowland High School in Rowland Heights, Calif., has competed several times in the Junior Olympics and in the Winter Air Gun Championships. She earned a spot on the international team by finishing second in the USA Shooting National Junior Pistol Championships in July at Fort Benning, Ga.
“In this (USA Shooting National Junior Pistol Championships) competition, I proved to myself that I could compete at this level and it was a great confidence builder for me,” said Oh, who is one of 10 students participating in the Coast Guard preparatory program at GMC. “This (international competition) was a wakeup call for me to take my shooting more seriously and improve my game. It was a great experience to be a part of the U.S. team and to represent my country at the international level.”
Oh was also met by the Coast Guard Academy Scholars at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Saturday when she returned from Spain.
“During the World Competition, I learned a great deal about what I need to do to improve myself and my shooting,” Oh said. “It was motivating to see the top shooters have such a strong mental game and consistently hit 10s on the targets.
“I am extremely proud to have had the opportunity to have this experience. I felt honored being an athlete from the U.S. representing my country and this experience is giving me the drive to push myself at this level and to learn from my mistakes.”
GMC opens its 2014-15 season at home on September 18 vs. Georgia Southern.
