Army Marksmanship Unit Olympians at Army Ten Miler

The Army Ten Miler is the third largest road race in the world. Started in 1985, it attracts 30,000 runners, half of them currently serving in the US armed forces, and is supported by 1200 military personnel.

Leading off the 28th Annual Army Ten Miler at the Fitness Expo was CSM David Turnbull and COL James C. Markert, Regimental Commander of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard.) In attendance were members of the Army Marksmanship Unit, recently back from competing at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Shotgun shooter SSG Josh Richmond competed in the Double Trap event, SGT Vince Hancock successfully defended his 2008 Gold medal by taking Gold again in Skeet, and SFC Josh Olson competed in the mixed 50m Rifle Prone and mixed 10m Air Rifle Prone at the Paralympic Games.
