There’s another World Cup tournament that’s been going on besides the one in Brazil.

Two shotgun shooters from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) took home medals in double trap at the International Shooting Sports Federation World Cup in Munich. 

Staff Sergeants Glenn Eller and Jeff Holguin claimed the silver and bronze medals, respectively.

USAMU soldiers have claimed five out of nine possible medals on the World Cup circuit this year. In addition to the two medals won in Munich, Staff Sgt. Josh Richmond has earned two silver medals in 2014, and Holguin won the gold medal in April in Tucson, Ariz.

The soldiers have one more World Cup match before the world championships in September, where Olympic slots will be on the line for the first time leading up to the Rio Games in 2016.
