In this Wednesday, May 30, 2012 photo, U.S. Army Sgt. Josh Olson is photographed on the shooting range after practice at Fort Benning, Ga. Olson was on a routine patrol in Tal Afar, Iraq, when a grenade that was lobbed at his Humvee exploded. He lost his right leg in the attack, and would end up spending 18 months at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It was during that time that he took a trip to a shooting range, and impressed officials from the U.S. Army with his marksmanship, becoming the first athlete with a physical disability to be nominated to the Army's World Class Athlete Program. Now, Olson is setting his sights on a gold medal at the Paralympic Games in London. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
