We’re delighted to announce the Target Sprint GB Squad for the next 6 months.
British Shooting conducted a Talent ID weekend in early October and from there, junior and senior athletes were selected.
In being part of the Squad, athletes will benefit from GB Squad training weekends supported by British Shooting support staff designed to assist both on, and off, the field of play.
The athletes selected have a variety of different backgrounds, such as scouting, athletics, school, Air Arms Experience and the military, through which their journey eventually introduced to Target Sprint.
Head Target Sprint GB Coach, Martin Beard, is delighted with the talent already developing in a sport still in its infancy in the UK.
He said: “Huge congratulations to all of those selected. We were very impressed with the talent the athletes showed, and we are excited to be working with the squad to help raise their performances from good to excellent ahead of the 2018 season.”
The next cycle for GB Squad entry opens to anyone in the Spring. See Events page and GB Squad/Selection Policies.
Congratulations to all the athletes who are our new GB Squad until the Spring 2018, but particularly to Victoria Bradbury, Kieran Gall and Liam Edwards who due to topping their age/gender categories are automatically invited to be part of the 2018 Spring – Summer GB Squad.
