Shteyman is a championship pistol shooter and instructor, and his latest target is the 2012 Olympics in London. The Jewish shooter took part in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China, as a member of the USA support team, but hopes to make it as a shooter in 2012.
“This is my third chance to make the Olympic team, and it’s always a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Shteyman said. “I’m very excited to be able to compete against the best shooters in the USA.”
Shteyman, who has worked as a programmer/analyst for SYSCO Corporation for 13 years, is a bronze medalist in the USA Shooting National Championships and two-time national record holder.
He also coaches kids ages 8 to 18 (including one Jewish girl) at the 4-H Shooting Sports Club in Rosenberg. One of his 18-year-old students, who he has been teaching for three years, is a national juniors champion in the 25-meter Rapid Fire Pistol.
The article also mentions that Dmitriy will be going to the World Championships in Munich this year, so I will report on him as well as the Israeli shooters at that event.
