Former UK All-American wins gold in rifle

Put a gold medal on the board for the Kentucky rifle team.

Henri Junghaenel of Germany, a former Wildcat, took home top prize in the Olympics today in the 50-meter rifle prone.  I don’t know what that means but I know what a gold medal is and they’re hard to come by.

Junghanel was UK’s shooting-average leader in both guns during the 2010-11 NCAA Championship season. He was a four-time All-America selection at Kentucky.

    It means shooting from 50 meters while lying prone, aka on your stomach. A rifle is a type of firearm. A gold medal is what you win when you come in first.
