ON TARGET FOR SUCCESS
Continuing from their impressive performance in the ISSF World Tour Target – German Open, the Great Britain target sprint team dominated the leader board throughout the Dutch Open competition and finished with top honours in several categories. Equipped with the Air Arms S400 MPR, the talented athletes put on strong performances throughout the event. In the Men’s class, Anthony Glover finished with the second best time in the competition. Arno Turner took home 1st place in the Junior Men’s category, followed closely by Kieran Gall in 2nd and James Baxter in 3rd. The success continued as Rachel McManus won 1st place in the Women’s class and Emily Shawyer and Katie Robbins rounded off an impressive team performance finishing 1st and 2nd in the Junior Women’s competition. Over ten personal bests were achieved and the GB team have had a great confidence boost ahead of the ISSF World Championships in Korea. The results are a very positive outcome for the Great British target sprint team as they continue to develop toward their goal of becoming a world-leading shooting nation in target sprint.
