Peter Wilson has been on a whirlwind media tour since accomplishing the highest possible feat in the shooting world.
After winning gold in the double trap shotgun event at the London 2012 Olympics, Peter has met the likes of the Prime Minister and Lord Coe, at the same time as performing live studio interviews on almost every news channel going.
While shaking hands with David Cameron, Peter discussed the sport of shooting and promoted the fact that it should be given a better opportunity to thrive in the United Kingdom.
The 2012 gold medallist has been an incredible ambassador for the sport, and his success will no doubt revitalise shooting in this country.
In one interview yesterday, Wilson said: “Shooting really is a sport for everyone. I cannot emphasise enough how easy it is to get into.
“Whether fat or thin, tall or short, you can shoot, so why not get involved?
“Six years ago I wanted to start shooting so I typed clay pigeon shooting into Google and found my nearest range. I’m now a gold medal Olympian.”
The 6ft 6 shooter has been a huge hit with the home crowd, with his charm and personality winning over the hearts of the nation.
And it looks as though his friendly face has not gone unnoticed by Lord Coe himself.
The 2012 Chairman explained to Peter that he had come across very well in interviews and is a fantastic face for the sport of shooting.
In response, the Sherborne born ‘farm boy’ said: “It is an absolute honour to meet Lord Coe and be able to thank him personally for delivering such an incredible Games and providing me with the opportunity to win an Olympic gold.”
