ANOKA, Minnesota - March 18, 2024 - Federal Ammunition congratulates sponsored shooter Derrick Mein for winning his spot on the 2024 USA Shooting Men’s Trap team, headed to the summer Olympic games in Paris. Mein’s performance during the Shotgun Selection Match, March 11-17 at the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club in Tucson, Arizona, was exceptional.

“I had a good week! I was happy that I got to share this victory with my family. It’s always good to have my wife, daughter and parents by my side while competing,” said Mein. “Shooting 250 targets alongside everyone else that is in the running to make the team makes it feel like a 250 target shoot-off. That can test anyone’s mental fortitude.”

The Olympic games in Paris will be Mein’s second appearance on the world’s greatest stage. Mein was 24th in his Olympic debut in Tokyo and placed 13th with Kayle Browning in the mixed-gender team event. Derrick Mein won the World Championship in 2022 and many other titles since Tokyo. He is eager to get back into the Olympic arena.

“I’m most excited that my family will have the opportunity to travel to Paris this time around. In Tokyo, because of Covid, none of my family got the opportunity to attend. And it’s also a chance for some redemption, I didn’t feel like I had a good performance,” stated Mein. “Between now and the competition, I will be traveling to the three World Cup events as well as spending time with my coaches and team training to prep for the games. I’m extremely excited about this opportunity.”
