RIO Cartridges renews its contract with Olympic shooter Alberto Fernández Muñoz

The renewal of the agreement marks the 18th year of collaboration between the company and the twice Olympic Trap champion.

Madrid, 23rd February: RIO Cartridges and the Olympic Trap World Champion, Alberto Fernández Muñoz, yesterday signed the renovation of their sponsorship agreement that they enjoyed for the past 18 years..
This agreement comes after a 2017 filled with great victories for the Madrid shooter which culminated in his win at the World Cup Final in New Delhi in October where he also achieved a world record.  2017 also marked the presentation of RIO Cartridges' new global image.

The shooter has been with the company since the start of his sporting career and today he is our main ambassador of the Star Team Evo shooting cartridge which, according to Alberto, "RIO’s Star Team Evo is very accurate and very stable in high speed. Even though it has great penetrative power it still has a very low recoil”. 

Speaking on the renewal Alberto tells us that "As I always say, I am very grateful of my relation with RIO Cartridges who took a chance on me since the start of my shooting career and our joint efforts have brought us here today and we will continue winning together in 2018".

"In RIO Cartridges we have always believed in Alberto from the start as he is a shooter with an illustrustious  career as well as being a great person.  Year after year he keeps on winning more trophies and elevating the RIO brand to the highest position in Olympic Trap.  We have no doubt that this agreement will allow Alberto to win more trophies and also encourage more people to take up olympic shooting." explains Germán Morales, RIO Cartridges' General Manager.
