With the removal of double trap from the Olympic program at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, he started practising trap. "It’s hard to understand how the ISSF (International Shooting Sport Federation) came to this conclusion. Double trap shooting was everything for me. Omitting it from the Olympic schedule will pose serious ramifications on my career and those of others." Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games is likely to be his last international competition in double trap. (Athlete, 1 Nov 2017;, 23 Feb 2017)
