Shooting Sports USA: 2016 Bianchi Cup Awards Ceremony

dk-bianchi-2016

During his speech at the 2016 Bianchi Cup Awards Ceremony, Doug Koenig shared a story from earlier in his shooting career.

“For me, this match is all about the pressure and nerves. Anytime you can get through something like that, it’s a great feeling. It brings up a story about stress. I was asked a couple of times today what I thought about the new format, which is a story for another day. As it pertained to the Colt Championship Final today, the short answer is for me the Bianchi Cup week has been the most stressful 3-4 days for me every year. It’s self-induced, what I put into it and what I feel. The new format has elongated that to make it 5-6 days of pure torture, with no sleep [Laughs].”
