Gorgs Geikie, British Shooting Events and Commercial Coordinator said: “the partnership between the charity ABF, The Soldiers Charity and British Shooting is a lovely combination which goes hand in hand.”
In 2014 the Army Elite Sport Programme (AESP) was launched within the British Army using the £1.4 million it received, post the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, from G4S.
British Shooting, UK Sport, the EIS and the British Army invested resources in a programme to identify and develop shooters from within the Army.
The programme commonly known as Troops to Target is a programme we at British Shooting are thrilled to be able to showcase to the ABF audience and beyond.
Troops to Target has seen much success since its beginnings in 2014, but particularly in the recent years as athletes Zoe Chasemore (nee Bruce) and Sam Gowen claimed a World Championship Prone Team Bronze Medal and 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Rapid Fire Bronze Medal respectfully.
