“You ______ like a girl!” is a common phrase to show that you are a sissy at whatever you’re attempting to do. However, this little girl shows us that shooting like a girl can be a good thing!
Eight-year-old Addysson Solatu, also known as “Alpha Addy,” is not only a straight-A student and cheerleader, but she is also an amazing shot!
She began this sport at the young age of six, and has loved competitive shooting since she found a video about Katelyn Francis, by NRA Women.
Addy said the key to her rapid rise and success is her dedicated training regimen, which she fits into a packed schedule. Each day when she returns from school, she tackles her chores and homework first, then starts a warm-up exercise of 150 push-ups and sit-ups. A blue belt in karate and tournament competitor, Addy spars for an hour if she is preparing for an upcoming tourney, or practices techniques, combinations and knowledge work when training for an upcoming belt test.
She shoots hoots on a competition squads with adults, but she does not let the age factor intimidate her.
