Douglas and Coffee County resident, Brice Grantham, recently traveled to Budapest, Hungary to represent the United States. Brice has been shooting sporting clays since he was eight years old and is a current member of Team U.S.A. and is in his second year competing with the Professional Sporting Clays Association.

Brice’s coach and mentor, Anthony Matarese, Team U.S.A. member and 2016 World English Champion says “Brice has so much potential and I am ready to see him reach all his goals.”

His first trip out of the country, Grantham was thrilled to be shooting with other shooters from around the world. The World Fitasc Championship consisted of 1,004 competitors from 39 countries. Team U.S.A. Juniors consisted of other expert shooters, Dominic Gross, Braxton Oliver, and Matthew Toth. Opening ceremonies were held at World Class Equestrian Center. Overall, Team U.S.A. dominated the World Fitasc Championship. While in Hungary, Team U.S.A. was treated with world class accommodations and hospitality.

On Sunday, July 9, 2017, Grantham was awarded one of the biggest accomplishments of his career, the Beretta World Cup Jr. Champion. To win the Beretta World Cup Jr. category, two shoots are held in the United States, and lead up to the world shoot. The shoots are the North American Fitasc and the U.S. Grand Fitasc Grand Prix, in which Grantham dominated well enough in points to win the Beretta World Cup. In addition to being the Beretta World Cup Jr. Champion, Brice also won 4th in the World Fitasc in the Junior category, which is a great accomplishment for a 19-year-old.

“I am going to keep shooting until I reach the Olympics,” says Grantham. “I want to touch the Olympic Gold.”

Brice Grantham is the son of Kevin and Mandy Aldridge Grantham. Special thanks to sponsors, A.I.M. Shooting School (New Jersey), Briley Chokes, Fiocchi Ammunition, and GEC/Grantham Electrical Contracting.
