As the world’s top rifle shooter in the 1960s, Gary Anderson is one of the shooters most responsible for the United States’ resurgence in international rifle shooting in that era. In addition to his Olympic performances, Anderson won seven individual World Championships, set six individual world records, won 11 National Championships, and won 11 gold medals at the Pan-American Games. In addition he was a team member of several world record and world championship shoots. Anderson graduated from Hastings College in Nebraska and then studied for the seminary in San Francisco. Instead he entered local politics in Nebraska, eventually rising to become a Nebraska state senator. He spent several years as the executive director of the National Rifle Association, and in 2009 became President of USA Shooting.
