 Personal

Daughter of Sue Gramm and Dave Weisz, two younger sisters, Bailey and Hannah Weisz. 

Ali became involved in shooting sports through a gun safety and education program out of a small club in Montana at nine years oldThe program turned out to have both classes on gun safety and competitive BB target shooting. This is where she fell in love with the sport and slowly progressed into the event she competes in today. Some of her notable accomplishments include 202One Olympic Team Members, 2019 Pan American Games Gold Medalist and Olympic Quota Winner, splitting a playing card in half on her first try with her air rifle in college, four-time NCAA Individual Qualifier, and 2016 NCAA Air Rifle Bronze Medalist. 

Ali is an avid animal lover, loves immersing herself into other cultures, and while she has only been hunting once in her life, she would go again given the opportunity! 

   

Best Junior Advice:

If I had to choose just one thing to say, it would be that if the passion is still burning inside of you and the dream is still alive, never give up. I know it is so cliché, but it is something I truly believe in after watching my career unfold. There will be countless times that it becomes difficult or feels like everything is against you and you may feel like quitting, but don’t. Set goals and always strive to be better, whether in sport or in life.
