Haldeman, a member of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, previously specialized in double trap. When that event was eliminated from the Olympic program, he switched to trap, and on Sunday he finished fifth in the men's trap final, marking the highest finish for a U.S. man in the event since 2006, when Bret Erickson won a bronze medal.

Carroll, who made her world championships debut in 2014 at age 19, finished sixth in the women’s trap competition and also combined with Caitlin Weinheimer and two-time Olympian Corey Cogdell-Unrein to win the women's team gold medal.
