Former West Virginia University standout shooter Nicco Campriani shows off the gold medal he earned at this summer's Olympic Games in London.
Campriani won his gold in the men’s 50-meter 3 position. Campriani became just the fourth WVU athlete in school history to win an Olympic gold medal, joining James Jett (track), Jack Writer (rifle) and Jerry West (basketball).
Campriani also earned a silver medal in the men’s 10-meter air rifle competition.
Campriani, WVU coach Jon Hammond and Petra Zublasing
