West Virginia University junior Ginny Thrasher will represent the United States at the International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup on Thursday in New Delhi, India.

Thrasher will compete in the women’s 10 meter air rifle competition.

Thrasher is the only shooter that is representing the United States in the event, which is by invite only. She earned this invitation by winning a gold medal in last summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Last year, Thrasher claimed a bronze medal in the same event at the World Cup in Italy.

The junior is a big part of WVU’s success this season, helping the team jump out to a 4-0 record. Against Ole Miss in the last match, she tied her career-high in air rifle with a score of 599.

She has been a part of the five Mountaineers to make up the aggregate score in all four competitions thus far. Thrasher also swept the individual events twice this season, against Ole Miss and NC State.
