Miculek Earns Multiple First Place Finishes at IPSC Rifle World Shoot in Russia
Newington, N.H. (June 21, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. announces that Team SIG member Lena Miculek recently earned multiple top finishes during the first ever International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC)
Rifle World Shoot. Held at Moscow’s Patriot Park in Kubinka, the Rifle World Shoot consisted of 591 competitors from 40 nations who competed in 30 stages over the course of a week. It is the highest-level rifle match within IPSC.
“For the action shooting sports community, this is our Olympics,” said Lena Miculek. “I was lucky to make the Ladies Open Team alongside Ashley Rheuark, Maggie Reese and my mother Kay Miculek. Through crazy weather and intense competition, the Ladies Open Team came out on top!”
In addition to the team victory, Miculek battled through illness to claim multiple individual titles, including the Ladies Open shootoff and 1st place in the Ladies Open division. Using a SIGM400 Predator and SIG Elite Performance ammo, she also reached her goal of placing in the top 20 overall in the world, beating out many of the world’s finest competitors, including her father, shooting legend Jerry Miculek. After a week of competition, the Louisiana native returned home with a pair of 1st place trophies and five gold medals.
“It was an incredible experience to represent the United States at the IPSC Rifle World Shoot,” said Miculek. “Competing against the world’s finest shooters was very humbling. Standing on the podium and hearing our National Anthem play was an experience beyond words.”
