Lena Miculek Wins 2018 IPSC Shotgun World Championship Title Claiming “Three-Peat” Individual Title and Winning Ladies Team Honors
North Haven, CT – (ArmsVault.com) – Mossberg congratulates Lena Miculek and the USA Ladies Team for their recent wins at the 2018 Shotgun World Shoot, held in Châteauroux, France. Now a three-time champion, Miculek took top honors in the Ladies Category, followed by impressive finishes by fellow Team USA members Dianna Muller, Dakota Overland and Rebecca (Becky) Yackley finishing in second, third and fourth places respectively. Team USA (Miculek, Muller, Yackley and Katie Francis) also claimed the gold in the Ladies Category – Standard Division. Medals were presented to the individual and team winners during the Shoot-Off Awards Ceremony on Sunday, June 10, 2018.
Born into a dynasty of professional competition shooters and competing since she was eight years old, Miculek established her domination with her first major championship at the 2012 IPSC Shotgun World Championship in Debrecen, Hungary; followed by a second title in 2015, when the World Championship was held in Agna, Italy. Since actively-competing, beginning in 2011, Miculek has claimed an impressive list of titles including back-to-back 3GN Lady Championships in 2013 and 2014; Pan American 3-Gun High Lady in 2013 and USPSA Multi Gun Nationals in 2014.
Just like her father and mother, Miculek’s go-to shotgun is the Mossberg® 930™ JM (Jerry Miculek) Pro. At the core of the 930 JM Pro is a fast-cycling, gas-vent operating system which aids in recoil reduction and reduces stress and wear on operating parts. To meet the demands of competitive shooters, several performance-enhancing features were added including Mossberg’s extended knurled bolt handle; forend cut to facilitate faster reloads; oversized safety button; adjustable trigger over travel; choice of 9-shot or 10-shot capacities; and protective barrel clamp for the extended mag tube. Internal parts also receive a special corrosion-resistant finish for smoother cycling and ease of cleaning.
