In addition to the team victory, Miculek battled through illness to claim multiple individual titles, including the Ladies Open shootoff and 1st place in the Ladies Open division. Using a SIGM400 Predator and SIG Elite Performance ammo, she also reached her goal of placing in the top 20 overall in the world, beating out many of the world’s finest competitors, including her father, shooting legend Jerry Miculek. After a week of competition, the Louisiana native returned home with a pair of 1st place trophies and five gold medals.

    Lena is an attractive woman. But how much more attractive would she be if I didn’t see Jerry everytime I look at her?
