U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., and WNBA player Kara Lawson were named the winners of the Olympic & Paralympic Caucus Free Throw Challenge. The event was hosted by the United States Olympic Committee and Congressional Olympic & Paralympic Caucus.

Participating members of Congress were paired with a U.S. Olympian or Paralympian to shoot free throws and the duos with the highest scores were awarded gold, silver and bronze medals.

Bustos and Lawson won gold, followed by Rep. Jared Huffman of California and two-time Paralympian Kari Miller, and Rep. Joe Crowley of New York also competing with Lawson.
