Our guest today is Lanny Barnes. Lanny is a three-time Olympian in Biathlon and is a National & World Champion in several shooting disciplines. Lanny is currently teaching courses to military, law enforcement and competitive shooters on the physiological and psychological aspects of shooting. Lanny & her twin sister, Tracy, spend a majority of their free time traveling around to schools, 4-H clubs, and Boys & Girls Clubs, talking to children about following their dreams, setting goals, and leading a healthy active lifestyle. And if all of that isn’t enough to fill a calendar, Lanny also takes wounded vets and terminally ill kids on hunts through Freedom Hunters and OE4A. 1) When the topic came up recently about US Olympians bringing activism into their sport – particularly activism that appears to be less than pro-American you put up a particularly thoughtful social media post about your own experiences as an Olympian – over multiple years – who represented your sport and our nation. Help people better understand the responsibility, if any, that our US Athletes have to represent – with pride – our country on the world stage? 2) In the Olympics, each nation is represented with the symbol of their flag. The Olympians have their nation’s flag on their uniforms. The American flag plays a prominent role in the US Olympic Teams’ presence in the Olympics as a whole. How does it square to have any single Olympian behave as though they are divorcing themselves from the flag of the nation they represent? 3) With the political firestorm that the 2A has become, are we still able to introduce the shooting sports to young people? And how? 4) Talk to us about the She Never Quit Event that is coming up in October in TX. I (Cheryl) have the awesome honor of being able to come this year. What will I experience when I get there? And do you still have openings for 2021? 5) While many people understand hunting as conservation, hunting can be a controversial topic. And you are part of using hunting as therapy for veterans and as a tool for instilling responsibility and maturity in the next generation.
