#MLGV | Gary Inrig - OUCH!!! wRonGTArgEt! "ALL HE HAD TO DO was hit the target and the Olympic Gold Medal would be his!
Matt Emmons was competing for the United States in an event known as the 50 Meter Rifle Three Positions. He was a two-time world champion in the event and the holder of one shooting gold medal already in the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. With reasonable accurate shot, he would not only win the gold, he would be the first shooter ever to win double gold. His shot was more than good enough, an 8.1 when he needed only a 7.2. But then the bad news: he had made a mistake only novices make. He had shot at the wrong target! Standing in lane two, he had fired at the target in lane three, earning a score of 0 and falling all the way to an eighth place finish. Commenting later, he said, "On that shot, I was just worrying about calming myself down and just breaking a good shot, and so I didn't even look at the number. I probably should have. I will from now on" There's really no doubt he should have! After all, it doesn't matter how accurate you are if you're aiming at the wrong target." #makelovegoviral #target #dontmissthetarget #shootontarget #MLGVmindset #2018
