Barney Shoots For The Stars
Year 8 student Barney Eastman has only been clay pigeon shooting for just over a year but has just been crowned Hampshire Colt Champion at Owls Lodge Shooting School in Winchester!
This was particularly impressive as 12 year-old Barney beat over 120 competitors ranging in age up to 17! Now he has been asked to shoot at the 2019 Beretta World Sporting Championship at the Holywell Estate in Hampshire at the end of June.
Barney trains every weekend at registered clay shoots and practises daily.
He said, “My dad started clay pigeon shooting and so I decided to have a go. It’s my life now – I practise every night to try and improve my arm strength. My real ambition is to get to the Olympics!”
