Judging from her rock solid standing position, and the Anschütz M1903 she was holding near the beginning of the video, I'd say she's spent some time in competition. It wouldn't surprise me if you found her name high up in the standings in past or present national small bore matches.

I might be able to pull off that shot, given enough time and ammo. :lol:

Nice shooting, a tip of the hat to her. Image

Starting later than the norm for most competition shooters, she began her Olympic-style rifle career in the latter part of her high school years, but made up for time swiftly. She won gold at the International Cup at Bisley, Enlgand and received a collegiate rifle scholarship to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. From there she made the national development team, competed in the World Championships, World Cups, made the Olympic short-list, won national titles, and the list continues [see competition bio]:

Before Nebraska

Weiss competed as a junior shooter at Palmyra Sportsmen, winning many medals there as well. She took second place in the Junior Sharpshooter competition at Camp Perry, Ohio, in 2003, falling just one point short of championship wares. Weiss took first place at National Guard competitions in Pennsylvania and Arkansas in 2004, and won an individual gold medal in the outdoor three-position smallbore at the 2004 International Junior match in Bisley, England. Her team also claimed a gold medal in smallbore and a bronze medal in air rifle in the same match.

I've split a .177 pellet on a razor blade, but that was at about 10 feet and it wasn't on my first try.
I do kinda love the bright sword for its sharpness.
