Katie Jacob is making her last year as a junior competitor count as she put fourth another fine showing at the 2019 World Championships Saturday, earning an individual silver medal and leading her team to a bronze medal in the process.
No stranger to top-notch World Championship performances, today’s silver medal from Lonato, Italy, marks the fourth straight top-seven finish and her third Finals appearance in four tries.
Jacob made the Final by finishing first with a Qualification score of 117. 2018 World Champs bronze medalist and 2017 World Champs silver medalist Austen Smith (Keller, Texas) could not make it three-straight podiums this year as she shot 114 to miss the Final by one target. Competing in her first international event, Jasmine Otis (Wasilla, Alaska) connected on 98 targets to finish 27th.
