After a career laden with victories, Richard Faulds has officially retired from competitive shooting to focus his energy on Owl’s Lodge Shooting School, supporting his wife Tanya in her shooting pursuits and following the progress of his son Charlie, who has recently started shooting.

In 2000, Richard won Double Trap gold at the Sydney Olympics, but in the same year he proved just as capable at Sporting and won the first of many World Championships. He has also won the FITASC World Championship and the Beretta World Championship on several occasions.
