Army Sgt. 1st Class Adam Sokolowski was assigned to the Army Marksmanship Unit right out of basic training in 1999. Ever since, he’s been winning service pistol competitions and setting records, both individually and for the team. Most notably, Sokolowski won the 2018 Bianchi Cup Open championship, making him the first person to ever win three consecutive Bianchi Cups — a competition where there are three divisions, but you can only win one division per year.
