Olympic Trapshooter Corey Cogdell-Unrein Takes The Bronze In Rio

posted on August 9, 2016

On Sunday, Corey Cogdell-Unrein earned the bronze medal in women’s trap at the 2016 Rio Olympics—the second medal earned by the U.S. shooting team this year, as well as Cogdell-Unrein’s second Olympic medal (she also earned a bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.)

In a Facebook post on Monday morning, the 29-year-old shooter from Eagle River, Alaska, said, “I can hardly put into words what it means to me to have won my second Olympic medal yesterday, another bronze. To stand on top of the podium again after an eight-year absence it's hard not to take the time to reflect on how far I have come. … I can only ultimately give the glory to one person, Jesus. He has given me the personal strength to carry on day after day and placed all the right people in my life to help me along this journey. I went to God so many times this week for comfort, patience and strength, and he delivered all of that—including an extra bonus of this beautiful Olympic Bronze Medal.”
