Jim Hanson and Andra Olson Take Top Honors at CMSA World Championship
Jim Hanson captured the Reserve World Champion Cowboy title and Andra Olson won her second consecutive Overall World Champion Cowgirl title at the recent Cowboy Mounted Shooting World Championships in Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition, Hanson and Olson were named the World Team Champions.
“I am extremely pleased with my results at the world championships this year,” said Olson. “Each year the field of competitors gets deeper and more skilled which makes repeating all the more difficult.”
“Winning the Reserve World Championship title was a major accomplishment especially at the end of a very challenging year for me,” said Hanson. Earlier this year Hanson broke his ankle and was sidelined from competition for two months.
The event, which attracted a total of 258 competitors, took place November 17-21, 2004 at West World in Scottsdale, Arizona. Prizes included several Colt .45 caliber single action pistols, two horse trailers and over $45,000 in cash.
