U.S. Shooting Team Roasts Piers Morgan Over Olympic Shooting Competition Tweet
After the United States won their first gold medal in the 2016 Olympics in Rio for a shooting event, Piers Morgan took to Twitter and trolled the U.S. shooting team for winning the event, only to have the team fire back at him.
On Saturday, 19 year-old Ginny Thrasher won the United States’ first gold medal of the Rio Olympics by winning the 10 meter air rifle competition. She beat out some of the heavily favored shooters in the competition from China, including the defending Olympic champion in the event.
Piers Morgan trolled on Twitter saying that it was the “least surprising breaking news ever” that an American athlete won the first gold medal in a shooting competition.
