Biography

Wanda Jewell was a small-bore rifle shooter who won a bronze medal at the 1984 Olympics, and also competed in 1988. Jewell competed at the Pan American Games in 1979, 1983, 1987, and 1995, winning six medals, including four golds, and twice finished first in non-medal events. Jewell went to Eastern Washington State University where she was in ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corp), and in 1976 became an active duty soldier, later assigned to the US Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU).

In 2000 Jewell became USA Shooting rifle coach, holding that position for two years, when she was named director of operations. She was also a shooting official who worked as a volunteer at many US and international events.
