ANOKA, Minnesota – Federal Ammunition sponsored shooter Derrick Mein has won his 14th Kansas State Championship Title. The Powder Creek State Sporting Clays Championship was held June 24-27 in Lenexa, Kansas. Powder Creek Shooting Park is a premier shotgun shooting facility, servicing a large area near Kansas City, Missouri. Mein topped the podium as Powder Creek Cup Champion, Prelim Runner-Up, and Promatic Cup Champion. The outstanding accomplishment is additional fuel for his preparations to compete in the upcoming Tokyo games.

“Mein is certainly one of the top shooters in the world and has been burning up the circuit all summer long in multiple disciplines. He will also be one of the trap shooters to represent the U.S.A. in Tokyo this July,” said Federal’s Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash. “We are eager and excited to see his performance—and all of our sponsored shooters on the USA Shooting team—during the games this year.”

“I have been shooting a lot of Federal Gold Medals at various competitions this year to get ready for the Olympics. Federal’s consistency, quality and reliability allow me to focus on my skills without worry,” said Derrick Mein. “I fully expect to put forth my best effort at this year’s Olympic Games. I will represent our country with dignity. There is no greater honor than to get to represent the USA in the largest and most prestigious sporting event in the world.”
