Injuries

After breaking his leg playing rugby at 18, decided to take shooting a little bit more seriously. (Facebook Page, 27 Sep 2017)


Reason: Lived 10 minutes from the local shooting school and, as a farmer’s son on the Isle of Man, taking up the sport was inevitable. (thefield.co.uk, 5 Aug 2016)
Ambition: "The aim would be to bring back a medal for the Isle of Man and double trap would be my best chance." (khaleejtimes.com, 26 Oct 2017)
Memorable: Bronze medal at Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. (britishshooting.org.uk, 23 May 2017)

People say it's the worse spot, and yes, being so close to a medal is painful, but I've taken so much from this event." (metro.co.uk, 10 Aug 2016; Facebook, 13 Aug 2016)
