Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

TEENAGE clay pi­geon shooter Amy Ease­man has fur­ther il­lus­trated her cre­den­tials as a fu­ture Olympian after re­cent suc­cesses abroad with the Great Bri­tish Ladies team.

The 13-year-old (pic­tured right) from South Heath con­sis­tently ex­celled to win a sil­ver medal with the GB team at the World Com­pak Cham­pi­onships, held at Hippo Creek, in Jo­han­nes­burg re­cently.

Ease­man, who fin­ished ninth over­all and sec­ond in the GB team, does not turn 14 un­til Jan­uary and has only been com­pet­ing in the sport for two years.

Her fa­ther Phil also added to the fam­ily suc­cess by fin­ish­ing 16th in the men’s event.

The young shooter has since gone onto claim do­mes­tic suc­cesses by win­ning the Ladies Bri­tish Open in both the colt and trap events last week.
