    1st Lt. Amber English, a Colorado Springs, Colorado native who is an instructor/shooter with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, was recently selected for a spot on Team USA in the Skeet event for the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

    English grew up around the shooting sports but wasn’t really competitive in it until she was 17. After progressing up the competitive circuit, she became a full-time athlete at the Olympic Training Center in 2012. In 2016, she came close to her dream of making Team USA when she was selected as an alternate in the Skeet Trials for the Rio Games.

    Looking for a change, she joined the U.S. Army Reserve in 2017 with a special assignment to the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program. As an Army athlete, English is attached to the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Georgia to train with other elite marksmen in uniform.

    Since joining the Army, this Soldier has earned a number of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at international competitions, bringing her closer to that Olympic dream.

    In March 2020, English completed the second, and final, part to the Skeet Olympic Trials and earned a spot on Team USA. Not only did she earn her spot, she took it with determination, shooting a perfect score in six of 10 rounds. English’s cumulative score was 532.

    English will compete in the Women’s Skeet event at the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

    This interview is some basic Q & A with her from March 2020.
