Medals for Norfolk Young People

Shooting successes for three Norfolk Explorer Scouts.

The National Smallbore Rifle Association (NSRA) recently hosted the British Junior International at Bisley Camp in Surrey.

Three Norfolk Young People, as well as one of our leaders, were lucky enough to take part. The Young People participated as international competitors and the leader as a coach. All four were representing The National Scout Rifle Squad.

Ellie Folkard and Olivia Hill competed in the ladies 10m Precision Air Rifle event, Freya Giles in the Ladies 50m Smallbore event and Tom Hadley as Air Rifle Coach.

All three ladies brought home medals. Ellie and Olivia with Silver in the team event and Freya with a Silver for her individual event.

Freya was also selected to shoot for Great Britain in the draw match against many other countries from all over the world, we are still awaiting the results.

It was a fantastic event where our Norfolk ladies managed to beat junior Olympians!
