BIOGRAPHY
Jack Fairclough shoots Olympic Skeet for the Great Britain Team. 

Here is his personal biog: 

"I am twenty years old. I have been shooting Clay Targets for the last 4 years.  I have been ranked number one in Olympic Skeet by British Shooting for Under 21's and number two for seniors in 2017.

"In my first season shooting Olympic Skeet at the age of 16, I was selected for the Great Britain Junior Team to shoot both the European and World Championships. I was part of the successful Great Britain Team at the World Championships 2014 in Granada where we won the bronze medal. 
Since then I have qualified and had the honour to shoot for Great Britain in the European and World Championships in 2015, 2016 and 2017. 

"I am a member of the Great Britain World Class Programme.  I am also the youngest male to make the Great Britain senior squad and am delighted to have done so whilst under 21.

"After the four qualification competition shoots for the Commonwealth Games, I have finished first in the rankings with a shoot average of 121/125 and have been selected to represent Team England in Australia in 2018. I have also been selected for the World University Games in 2017.

"In 2016 I had the honour of being one of the two shooters, the other a double trap shooter,  nominated by the British Olympic Committee to the British Olympic Ambitions programme where athletes who are expected to represent Great Britain at the Olympic Games in 2020 are sent to the Rio Olympics for pre-games experience. This meant I was part of the team to attend the Olympic Games in Rio 2016."
