Rimfire and centerfire rifle shooter Steffen Olsen

Steffen Olsen is a Danish shooter who excels in especially in 50 meter and 300 meter ISSF and CISM rifle disciplines 3-position and prone. His favorite .22lr ammo is X-Act and Midas+.

“I’ve been shooting since I was 5 years old, as all my closest family were shooters when I was a child. I’m educated as a lawyer, but I’m also a reservist in the army. Other than shooting, my hobbies are parachuting and taking care of my family. With a lot of training on the range (1000 pcs, 15-20 hours/week in season) I don’t have time for many other things.

My favorite disciplines are the match disciplines. 3×20 & 3×40 on both 50 and 300 meters. Regarding favourite Lapua ammo, I really like the 6mm BR and the accuracy I get from that calibre.”

At the 2018 World championships in Changwon, Steffen won the 60 prone event at 50 meters, and he holds a World Record in 300 m Military Rapid Fire 3×20 with 599 points. His future goals are to get a top 8 placement at the European Championships and a quota place for the Olympics in Tokyo.
