Fantastic performances in Italy at the International Open Target Sprint 2019, held in the beautiful setting of Ora saw two new British Records!
Jonathan Williams smashed the Junior Men’s Singles British Record in the Final at the weekend by a massive 11 seconds, from the current holder Morten van der Schee who set the previous record in September 2018 at the World Championships in Changwon.
The Junior Men’s British Record now stands at 4 minutes 26.34 seconds.
Andrea Williams, mother of Jonathan said; “We couldn’t be prouder of Jono. He’s really reaping the rewards of his hard work at home and with his training group at the Sedgemoor Regional Centre.
“We’re all still on cloud 9!
“It was lovely to hear from Jono when he got home about the support the Sedgemoor coaches and his fellow team mates shared.”
2019 is proving a very successful season for Jonathan as he now tops the GB Ranking’s, Super League 2019 Leader Board and is set to wear his GB colours for the first time in Suhl for the ISSF World Tour Target Sprint German Open in July.
Emily Shawyer broke her own British Record again in the Junior Women’s Singles Final, which now stands at a time of 5 minutes 19.78 seconds.
Emily’s dominance in the Junior Women’s category domestically continues in 2019, however the margin is decreasing on the GB Ranking’s as a number of young ladies are making big steps in their performance improvements!
Emily Shawyer said; “It was an honour to represent Vorwaldschutzen Renholding in the Women’s Team Final winning a Bronze medal, then to follow that with a new British Record finishing 4th in the Individual Junior Women’s final representing Target Sprint Wales. It was a great start to my International Competition season!”
