The Arizona Republic reports that Jay Shi of Phoenix is participating in the U.S. Olympic air pistol trials. The trials run through tomorrow (March 3, 2008), and competition is tight. The U.S. only has 1 slot available.
Because of damage to his right eye, Shi shoots righthanded but aims with his left eye -- an unusual approach. But he recognizes that: "This is a mental sport much more than physical."
