“ELEY’s partnership continues to play a vital role in the success of USA Shooting’s rifle and pistol athletes in international, Olympic, and Paralympic competitions,” said Buddy DuVall, CMO for USA Shooting. “Having ELEY as a long-term partner through the LA 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games will ensure that our athletes have world-class ELEY Tenex ammunition and ELEY testing facilities for matching the best possible ammo to each team member’s rifle or pistol. Winning at the highest levels of international competition demands shooting the most accurate and reliable ammunition possible, that’s what ELEY delivers for USA Shooting.”
ELEY’s premium cartridge, Tenex has been used by Olympic champions throughout the world since 1964 when the new .22 entered the world of competition shooting at the Tokyo Olympic Games, winning all gold and silver medals in the .22 long rifle and pistol events.
This success story continues nearly sixty years later at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with the Tenex cartridges winning 6 medals, 2 Gold, 2 Silver, and 2 Bronze, bringing ELEY’s Olympic medal haul to 131 in total.
