Nineteen-year-old American Ginny Thrasher is the first champion of Rio 2016.
Growing up she always wanted to compete at the Olympic Games in figure skating.
“About the time I started shooting, toward the start of high school, I knew I wasn’t going to make it in ice skating. Other than that, I had never thought about the Olympics before” she said.
She entered the 2016 US Olympic Trials, with the goal of doing her best, not making the Olympic team.
