BIOGRAPHY

Rio 2016 Olympic Bronze medalist and Beijing 2008 Olympian, Steve Scott is a two-time European double trap champion having taken the title in 2008 and 2014.

After finishing 12th at Beijing 2008, Scott went on to become a double Commonwealth gold medallist after clinching the double trap pairs title at Delhi 2010 alongside Stevan Walton and the individual accolade four years later at Glasgow 2014.

The Lewisham-born shooter competed as part of Team GB again at the inaugural Baku 2015 European Games, finishing fifth in the menís double trap, and rounded off his year in style by taking gold at the ISSF World Cup Final in Cyprus.

A double World Championship bronze medallist, Scott secured the teamís fifth quota spot for Rio 2016 with a silver medal win at the Gabala 2015 World Cup in August 2015.

Scott won Bronze in Rio after competing in a tense medal match against compatriot, Tim Kneale.

Steve says: "I love my job! I know I am a very lucky man to be in the position I am, that said i have made some very big sacrifices and been extremely driven to succeed and try not to leave any stone unturned. 

"You never stop learning! I would like to thank everyone that has helped me over the past 14 years to achieve what I have to date! But mainly a massive thanks to my dad... for introducing me into the sport and backing my every decision be it the wrong one or the right one."
