GB’s Olympic Trap shooters impressed with some fantastic performances at the Portugal Grand Prix over the weekend.
Aaron Heading took top spot in men’s Trap shooting 120 in qualification and 43 in the final and Ellie Seward shot 41ex 50 to win the women’s Trap despite qualifying for the final in sixth spot.
In junior women’s Trap Augusta Campos Martyn shone in qualification after shooting 113, but it was 14-year-old Lucy Hall that won once through to the final. Third spot was secured by Rebecca Ferguson. That means GB occupied first, second and third place!
In junior men’s Trap, Theo Ling shot 113 in qualification and eventually secured top spot in the final, with compatriot James Dedman, who is transitioning from Double Trap to Trap winning bronze.
Speaking after the event, Head Shotgun Coach, Kevin Gill, said: "I thought there were some very solid performances across the board.
Aaron shot very well, Augusta had a superb performance and it was good to see Matt Coward Holley back up amongst it in his qualification round."
