The 2019 Target Sprint domestic and international season is fast approaching.
British Shooting’s Target Sprint Selection Panel will be selecting a GB Team for the ISSF World Tour Target Sprint – German Open held in Suhl from 12th – 14th July 2019. Selection will be made shortly following the Scout & Open Championships 11-12 May held at Southampton.
Dean Leak, British Shooting Talent Pathway Manager said; “We’re thrilled to announce that British Shooting has selected the Target Sprint Team Lead and Team Support roles for the ISSF World Tour Target Sprint – German Open, as Gorgs Geikie and Robert Shawyer respectfully. The primary objective of the team management is not to coach, but to help support the GB athletes selected to carry out their individual pre, during and post competition plans.”
The Target Sprint team will be part of the wider GB Team from rifle, pistol and shotgun attending the event and led by an overall GB Team Manager. Further GB team staff and athlete announcements will follow.
Robert Shawyer, Target Sprint GB Team Support (ISSF World Tour German Open 2019) said; “I am delighted to be selected to support the Target Sprint GB Team athletes selected for the World Tour. I look forward to assisting the team as a whole and moreover, each athlete in executing their competition planning before during and after the event.”
We at British Shooting recognise that parents/coaches etc. may wish to go to support their athlete(s) and simply ask them to be considerate of the wider GB Team policy.
