SPORATI ON GINNY TRASHER

Virginia Thrasher or who is now popularly known as Ginny Trasher was born on February 28, 1997. She is an American sports shooter who made waves and became globally known after she won the first gold medal in the women’s 10 meter air rifle at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

Trasher competed for the first time in the Olympics and was able to beat 2006 World Champion Du Li from China including veteran Yi Shiling.

Trasher is a natural in shooting and had learned about it after she went with her grandpa to go deer hunting. At that point of her life she left figure skating, her first love, as she didn’t have the talent for it.

GINNY TRASHER NOTABLE QUOTES

“It’s a sport of precision. Picture a pencil, and if you take the eraser of that pencil, that’s the very middle of the circle. And then if you took a period in size 12 Times New Roman font, and you put it in the middle of that pencil eraser, that is the 10. So, I have to hit that dot at 10 meters to shoot a 10. Now that’s just a 10.0, if I hit that dot it’s just a 10.0, and then if I hit in the very exact center it’s a 10.9”
