SPOKANE, Wash. - Tucked beside the Spokane River is the Spokane Rifle Club. It's a proud fixture of the community since 1924. It's a place members and the public can shoot their rifles and pistols, and in the past 20 years, they have had four different Olympians come through.
Amanda Furrer is one of those Olympians. She shoots tomorrow in the 50 meter rifle. Furrer started at the Rifle Club when she was 11 and never stopped shooting.
In fact, she gives a lot of the credit to the club. "I wouldn't have had the resources to shoot like I do. I would not have the opportunities that I do now," Furrer said.
