MacWet Shooter Amber Hill Sets Sights on the Olympics in Rio

7 December 2012

MacWet Shooter Amber Hill has changed her shooting discipline from from skeet to Olympic skeet as she attempts to make the Olympics in Rio. She made the change around the end of February and the transition has gone very well so far, with Amber shooting in a number of selection shoots and managing to get in the England and GB ladies team.

Her performances this season have certainly demonstrated Amber's great talent as one of the best in her discipline in the UK. She went to the World Championships in Italy where she was one of the top shots in the GB ladies team. Amber also went to Cypress to the European Championships, where her team won a silver medal.

At the Junior International Cup in Finland, Amber looked like the favourite to win gold until the very last round, and she ended up achieving an excellent bronze medal. She also has performed at the Home International for England and won top lady over all, shooting a 91/100 . Amber has now been asked to be one of the faces for the CPSA along with a few others. She is training hard and is really looking forward to next year.

At the moment, she is ranked number 1 in England and number 2 in GB. One of her ambitions for the forthcoming season is to become the number 1 in GB. These excellent performances have seen Amber short-listed for the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics in Rio.
