With a little help from his dad, Frank got his start in shooting when he was 10 years old. Frank honed his skills through the sporting clays programs and made the National Development Team in 2006.  He attended the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs with a major in Business.  Frank’s second cousin, Patty Durkin, is a three-time medalist (two gold and one bronze) in Paralympic Wheelchair Track, in Barcelona in 1992. In high school, Frank also played tennis and was on the wrestling team. In his free time, Frank enjoys hunting, fishing, motor sports and working on the family ranch in Nebraska.

Frank Thompson is an American rancher, raising beef for his family and the American people outside a small town in Western Nebraska. When he's not doing that he's shooting clays as part of America's shooting team having competed in the last two Olympic Games. He's like so many of our talented athletes -- ordinary people with an extraordinary talent but with the desire, discipline and dedication necessary to take his talent and represent America on the biggest stage twice. He, like so many of his teammates, represents what this country is all about as a rancher and as a shooter. - Shooting Is HIS Olympic Sport!
