As the youngest Olympian from U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit in Fort Benning, Spc. Dan Lowe, 23, will compete in two events - air rifle and 3-position rifle - at the Rio Olympic Games. His goal for his first Olympic Game in Rio is to have a performance that he could be proud of. “Win or not, I want to walk away saying I left nothing on the table,” he said. Lowe will compete for air rifle on Aug. 8 and 3-position rifle on Aug. 14.
