Gresham's at the Shooting World Championships

Published on isbi School News dated Wednesday 28th of September 2011

Gresham's new Shooting Master, James Lothian, will be captaining the Great Britain (GB) U25 rifle team at the Long Range Rifle Shooting World Championships in Brisbane, Australia, this October. Competing against five other nations, including the USA and South Africa, the GB team will have to undergo two weeks of intense competition in both the individual and team disciplines in order to make the final.

Nevertheless, we can be sure that the team is in good hands; James has had an impressive shooting career so far, competing annually in the National Championships and having undertaken a tour of South Africa with the Senior England team in 2009. What's more, James will be joined in the GB team this year by Old Greshamian Gareth Davies, a testament to the strong shooting tradition at the School. Whilst it's a tough task that lies ahead of him and the British team, we wish James and the GB team great luck at the Championships in October!
