Congratulations are in order for British Clay Shot James Wilkinson. James who is currently sponsored by William Powell recently became a father for the first time and is enjoying life as a dad!
Despite this new commitment, James has still been finding time to get out and shoot, and he updates us on his progress below;
The last few weeks have been hectic, having had a couple of league shoots for the emergency services.
As I also shoot for the army I have been doing registered shoots most weekends which is really good competition practise for me.
I also shot in the Sporting World Championships run by the CPSA and although I had a fantastic weekend, I felt that my shooting was not as good as it could have been â€“ I am hoping for better results at the British Open which Iâ€™m shooting at on the 30th August.
On a personal note, I have just finished another 3 weeks of rehab at Headly Court which consisted of intense physio most days, and I am also waiting on another operation to either replace my hip or try and clean the socket out.
I watched the Games closely and what a fantastic result for Peter Wilson in the double trap I will have to get practising I would love to be able to shoot at that level some day!
