USA Shooting mourns the loss of Hall of Fame inductee, Arthur Edwin “Art” Cook


Arthur Cook, member of the USA Shooting Hall of Fame, 1948 Olympic Gold medalist, and two-time National Smallbore Prone Champion passed away on February 12, 2021. Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Mary and their family and friends during this time.

“Most shooting athletes view Olympic Medals as a culmination of their career; for Art, his gold medal was only the beginning of his 70-year contribution to our sport,” says Matt Suggs, USA Shooting CEO. “He transcended beyond a champion, long after his individual achievements in the Olympics and World Championships, as a grand ambassador for our sport. With the same smile that he had in 1948.”
