Shooting success

Congratulations to Oliver Palmer (5th, L) who has been named this year’s DTL (Down The Line) Junior County Champion after competing in the Gloucestershire DTL Championship held at the Wales 2000 Shooting Ground recently. His individual round scores were 22/25, 25/25,18/25, 22/25, giving him a total of 87/100 hits and points of 252/300. 

He shot his first 25 straight in one of his rounds, with his only blip was when the trap height went wrong in round three and caused a 10 minute delay. Up to that he had only missed one of his fifteen shots. His final round he managed to score well to give himself a chance to win. In the end he was tied on 252 and had to go into a shoot off. In the shoot off he found his routine and concentration, and scored 23/25 and with it became this year’s DTL Junior County Champion.   

Ollie has been training for the last three and a half years at Ian Coley’s Shooting Ground with coach Shaun Porter who won Bronze in the DTL World Championship for England last week.

Continuing his success, Ollie won the inaugural Olympic Schools Experience on 12 June, click here for further details. On 15 June he retained his Gloucestershire Junior ABT title and has capped off a very successful season with the news that he has been accepted into the England Talent Pathway programme.
