Scottish Shooters Headed for Baku

Congratulations to Jen McIntosh and Neil Stirton who have been named in the Great Britain team for the upcoming World Cup in Baku.

The event runs from the 17th of June until the 27th of June and is the final World Cup of 2016 before the World Cup Final in Bologna, Italy.

Despite being a small team, the athletes selected have the ability to compete at the level required for the competition.

Rifle Coach, Donald McIntosh said: “Our experience at the European Games last year showed that the Baku 50m range can be pretty challenging so we have kept the team very tight, and selected only those who have clearly demonstrated that they have the potential to be competitive at this level, in contrast to the Munich World Cup where we have selected a larger team.”

Shotgun Head Coach, Kevin Gill, said : "The teams selected by the selection panel for Baku are made up of athletes with a wealth of experience along with athletes just starting out on their competitive journeys with a view to going on to compete in Tokyo 2020. This is also true of the new squads that have been selected. These athletes will help drive each other on to make Great Britain truly World leading."
