Robyn Van Nus

At 25 years of age, Robyn Van Nus made her Olympic debut, competing in the 50m rifle 3 positions and 10m air rifle at the 2008 Beijing Games where she finished 40th and 44th respectively. Van Nus was coached by her mother Tricia, herself a successful shooter, who had encouraged her into the sport when she was 16. Missing out on selection for the 2004 Athens Team, Van Nus refocused and worked hard to make the team for Beijing. She returned to Olympic competition at the London 2012 Games where she again competed in the 50m rifle 3 positions (41st) and 10m air rifle (45th).
