Smiling and Amazing Matthew Emmons

“I had my best match of my life today,”

"It accidentally went off, that's pretty much it," Emmons said. "I shot a great match. It's just a crazy thing that happens."

"just worrying about calming myself down, and just breaking a good shot, and so I didn't even look at the number"

"The way I come into a target is I start above the target and come down from 12 o'clock and get into the bull's-eye," he said. "And as I get down into the bull's-eye is when I start to get on the trigger."

"I didn't feel my finger shaking, but I guess it was," said Emmons "I realized it went off and I hoped it made it into the black. I call it a freak of nature."

"As I was starting to get on the trigger, the gun just went off."

"I was like, 'Uh, that's not going to be good.'"

"Things happen for a reason,"

"I said that last time, and it's the truth. Maybe last time, the reason was Katy. This time I don't know yet, but I'm sure something good's going to come from it."

"Hell, I don't know, it just shows it happens. Of course this is what people are going to see, it's the biggest one. I've been to the Olympics twice, been in this final twice and in this same position twice,"

"And that's what sticks out. But there have been a ga-zillion finals where my last shot has been a really good 10."

"I gave it everything I had and couldn't be happier with the outcome,” Emmons said. “I am completely satisfied with the silver. This medal and this competition to me is the biggest one I have ever shot in and one I will never forget."

"It is not as important as my family life."

"We're a team, we do this together," he said. "She's a big part of my success and I hope I'm a big part of hers."
