American Joe Teela is our best hope for a medal. He started in 9th place today, which was by far and away the best placement an American has ever had going into the medal round.
I found this a bit surprising. You’d think Americans would be good at a sport that involves skiing + guns—or for that matter, anything + guns. What good are gun rights if they don’t even give us an edge in sports where you have to shoot at things?
Also this sport would be a lot better if they had paintball guns and shot at each other. Each time you got hit, you’d have to do a penalty lap.
