BEAVERTON, OR. – Team Leupold® shooters swept their respective divisions at the 2013 Bianchi Cup with wins in the Men’s, Women’s and Junior Divisions. Combined, Leupold’s pros have 22 Bianchi Cup titles between them.
Doug Keonig, the 15-time champion claimed his fourth-straight title with a perfect score of 1920 points, with 183 shots in the center X-ring (the tie breaker). This year’s championship, as has become the custom at this match, came down to the final stage, the Moving Target event.
Jessie Duff added her third Women’s Division title in the past four years with a score of 1893-142X. A technical issue on the Falling Plates event that might have rattled another competitor, was quickly shaken off by the world champion Duff.
The newest member of the team, Tiffany Piper, made the most of her first match under the Leupold banner by scoring her fourth Junior Division title. Shooting an 1885-143X score, the New Zealand native continued her domination of the junior class.
“Having champions such as Doug, Jessie and Tiffany on our team gives an extraordinary resource as we continue to develop and produce world-class competition optics,” said Mike Slack, Leupold & Stevens senior manager of advertising and communications. “We could not be more proud to be partnered with such fine people, both on and off the course of fire.”
