British Shooting has launched the Talent Network to continue searching for world class talent and potential in the UK.
The aim is to partner with clubs, grounds and coaches that will feed into the network and help provide developmental learning environments for those that wish to progress to the Olympic disciplines.
Dean Leak said: “The Talent Network will eb the catalyst for sharing experience, enabling experiment and the generation of learning. The strength of the community will come from British Shooting’s partners.”
Olympic gold medallist Peter Wilson said: “The more British Shooting and Sport England does to find talent at the grass roots level, the better. It was a chance encounter with Ian Coley that led to me pursuing a career in shooting. You can’t rely on chance encounters to produce medal winning athletes, there needs to be a more structured feeder system.”
