Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He shot air rifles as a boy in Orkney, Scotland, and rediscovered his interest in the sport while on a family shooting trip in 2013 in Inverness, Scotland.
Why this sport?
"It was a shooting trip with my father and two brothers in Inverness [in 2013] that rekindled the interest. I was shooting recreationally for a while, going out when I could, but about three years ago [speaking in 2019] I got to the stage where I had reached a plateau. That is when I began to shoot competitively [in shooting Para sport] and in 2016, I was selected to represent Scotland at the Home Countries International Tournament in Dublin [Ireland]."
