Rosealee Rieman ready for Junior Olympic trip
Rosealee Rieman is set to compete at the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships in Colorado Springs on April 15-16 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.
The Douglas High School senior has qualified to compete in the women’s smallbore event.
“This is an amazing opportunity that I am truly grateful to be awarded,” Rieman explained.
The top three shooters from this event, being hosted by USA Shooting, will qualify for the 2017 Junior Olympic team that competes on an international level.
Her goal to raise $3,300 to help offset costs for the trip was surpassed thanks to GoFundMe. More than $3,900 was raised in eight days — https://www.gofundme.com/help-get-rosealee-to-jr-olympics-2 — for Rosealee and her father/coach, Eric Rieman, for travel, lodging, meals and fees.
Rosealee is Nevada’s only native representative, male or female, entered in the Junior Olympic event.
