Texan wins silver in pre-Olympic shooting competition

Shooters from Texas and Michigan earned the U.S. Shooting team two medals Tuesday at the Good Luck Beijing 2008 World Cup event in China. The Cup is the test event for the 2008 Olympic Games.

Glenn Eller of Katy won the silver medal in Men’s Double Trap and Daryl Szarenski of Saginaw, Mich., claimed the bronze in the Men’s 50m Pistol event.

Eller will represent the U.S. in Men’s Double Trap at the Beijing Games in August. He won the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for shotgun shooting in March and also is a member of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Ga.
