Jess Liddon

Where in Scotland are you from? Lockerbie.

What discipline(s) do you shoot and who are your coaches? I shoot pistol - both APW60 and SPW and I am coached by Sonal Ramendra-Gyȍrik.

How did you get involved in the sport and what was shooting journey to get on to the performance programme? I started in the sport through Pony Club tetrathlon - it was actually my sister who was brilliant at it and as the annoying little sister I kept tagging along when she was invited to development camps until I got to the point where I started to get invited by myself.

Where you do your shooting? I train at a number of ranges - Callander, Carlisle, Bisley and Budapest depending on range availability and who I will be working with. I've actually found that training at a number of different ranges has helped my shooting as I don't have a 'home range' therefore travelling to new ranges for competitions doesn't affect me as much.

What are your hopes and plans for the future in terms of your shooting career? My plan is to do whatever I can to reach a point in my shooting career where I know I have given it my all and become the best that I can be. It would by dream for that point to be being on an Olympic and/or World Championship podium - only time will tell!

Any other interesting non-shooting related fact about yourself that you would like to mention? I am a full time Electrical Engineer which I have to balance with my training and competitions. I am very grateful to my manager and BAE Systems for supporting me in my athletic career and allowing me the time I need to dedicate to training and competing.
