There are high hopes for the Team GB squad for rifle & shotgun shooting in the Rio 2016 Games after successful shooter Amber Hill, aged 18, recently joined the team.
Cardigan, Ceredigion -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/24/2015 -- The GB Squad is now six-strong and highlights the ability and strength within shooting as a sport in Britain. This increases important awareness that rifle and shotgun shooting, when practiced responsibly, is a highly skilled and competitive discipline. It is also expected that the sporting successes of the GB squad may inspire more people to take up the sport themselves, something well-supported by a number of professionals in the field.
Amber Hill joined the team after claiming victory in Cyprus last month at the World Cup Final, following on from winning the 'skeet title' in the European Games. Her success has involved extensive amounts of practice and dedication in order to develop her aim. The prospect of competing in The Olympics therefore could be seen as well-deserved and emphasizes that rifle and shotgun shooting is a sport with plenty of place for progression.
This series of positive achievements has been celebrated by a number of industry related experts, including Cardigan sports. They provide an extensive selection of air guns and equipment and a spokesperson had this to say:
"We want to wish Amber Hill all the best in her Olympic dreams. Her successes show that Britain has a bold presence in rifle & shotgun shooting as a sport – and more people can get involved! These high-profile sporting successes mean that there are facilities opening up and down the country which the public can take advantage of too; trying out rifle and shotgun shooting for themselves. We would urge people to give it a try if they are interested!"
