Post my success in Pilsen (CZE) in January, my International competition season has been evolving slowly in the right direction. With finals placings and team gold medals being won at Intershoot (NED) and being the sole British Senior shooter both male or female, rifle and pistol to qualify for the European Air Weapon Championships in Prague.
This airgun success has seamlessly progressed into the beginning of the cartridge season, where at the April Zurich British training camp I raised my personal best to a score worthy of entering a World Cup final in gold medal position!
Staying abroad for a further couple of days before traveling straight to Hannover (GER) for the ISCH competition which was excellent preparation, because the competition saw me win a bronze medal and raise my own British Record from the previous year.
Excitingly this score was below my new ‘personal best’ set the week before in Zurich, so there is potential for even more!
This trip was all preparation for the next couple of weeks, when I shall be competing at the Munich and Milan World Cups, run back to back. Then this climax to the season is brought to an end at the Europeans held in Croatia in July.
