Richard Faulds retires from
Olympic Shooting (Please Note, Just Olympic Shooting!), here is
his letter: I am writing to inform you all that I am "officially
retiring" from competitive shooting within the "Olympic
Disciplines". I have enjoyed 20 years within this sport, represented
GB on 61 occasions, made up of the following events:
5 CONSECUTIVE OLYMPIC GAMES
Making 3 finals and winning Gold in 2000
12 World Championships, twice winning Bronze
10 European Championships winning 1 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze
32 World Cup events, winning 4 Gold, 4 Silver and 2 Bronze
Setting a Final World Record in 1998
Awarded an MBE for "Services to Sport" by HM The Queen
Over the years I have often
said "that's it... No more Double Trap" but I have many
other commitments in life now, with family and business, so I am
enjoying my time competing along side Tanya in Sporting, watching
her succeed and now our son Charlie has just started shooting, so
maybe he will continue the "Faulds" name at the Olympics
in a few years time.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has
helped me to reach the pinnacle of my sport over the years and I
wish everyone who is competing wearing the GB badge the best of
luck for the future.
Murray has been awarded the ISSF Blue Cross, in recognition
of his service to shooting at National and International level.

ISSF - Hey Ho, it's time to throw

FSP - There is one rule change
for FITASC Sporting with effect from 1st Jan 2015.The change is
an extended description of how tied scores for teams at 18.7 and
for individuals at 18.2 i.e individuals that are not in the first
three (3) positions i.e. Bronze, Silver and Gold.The individuals
rule reads: 18.2 Below the third place in the ranking and concerning
the tied shooters to be awarded, the tie will be broken by taking
the score on the 8th layout, then in
case still tied, by counting back from the 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd,
2nd, 1st layout. Tied shooters without award will be ranked as equals.
For Teams: 18.7 In the case of teams tying, the ranking is done
by taking the overall score of the team members on the 8th layout,
then in case still tied, by counting back from the 7th, 6th, 5th,
4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st layout.
This will be a disappointment to some out there who would like some
form of shoot off to take place for tied national teams. However
and approach to introduce this can be made next year. You will also
be pleased to learn that at the General Assembly in July, at Portugal,
the decision was made not to adopt the proposed shooting of chips
For Compak, the rules concerning shoot offs have been radically
amended and are much more easily understood.
Both the Sporting and Compak rules for 2015 are available for down
loading from the FITASC web site @ www.fitasc.com
Work has started on
introducing a common policy for national referee training leading
to the awarding of the International Licence in all FITASC disciplines,
Hugh Smith has been asked to contribute to this and it may take
a couple of seasons before we start to reap any benefits from this
ISSF - Congratulations to Team
GBR. Another Rio quota place and Silver medal thanks to Elena Allen
and team Gold in Skeet women courtesy of Elena, Amber Hill and Sarah
Grey. Ed Ling (124), Siver and Rio quota place (after s/o for Gold)
at Granada World Championships . Brad Davies (123) narrowly missing
out on final after s/o. Apparently I have been guilty of error and
omission - Nathan Hales beat Jack Wilkinson in a s/o for Junior
Bronze and the junior trap team of Jack Wilkinson, Nathan Hales
and Greg Trowell got Silver, one target behind Italy! Scotty wins
Bronze in Double Trap.
GBR Uniforms - Unfortunately
the Adidas uniform is now only available to ISSF discipline teams.
The situation arose when Adidas gave no notice to British Shooting
regarding the change of uniform design; it is also now required
that the lottery logo is on the uniform of GBR teams competing in
the funded events, effectively leaving no uniform availability to
teams competing in non ISSF events.In
consequence BICTSF finds itself in an unenviable position and is
making every effort to put alternative arrangements in place, but
realistically, these are unlikely to be available prior to the 2015

It was certainly tight for Abbey Burton, Kirsty Barr and Charlotte
Kerwood: Italy took gold on 204ex225 beating Germany (204) into
silver on countback; countback worked to GBR advantage for the bronze
medal as San Marino and Spain scored 202. Abbey Burton was very
close to a medal, winning a three way shoot off for two final places
from 70ex75, Abbey then went on to shoot the bronze medal match
against 2008 and 2012 Olympic silver medalist Zuzana Stefecekova
with Zuzana taking the podium just one target ahead of Abbey. See

FSP - British Grand Prix at Hodnet results.
- Tim Kneale has taken the Double Trap World Record with a massive
score of 148 ex 150 at the Munich World Cup, eventually coming
4th in the final. This beats USA's Glen Eller 146 set at last
year's Al Ain World Cup. Tim's coach, Martin Barker, is beside
himself with pride "I have coached Tim since 2003, he has
worked extremely hard and now it has really paid off. I have
had a remarkable two days as I also coach Michelle Rowe who
has just won silver at the Universal Trench European Champs".
- Congratulations to Ed Ling, 4th in the medal match at the
World Cup in Munich. Ed qualified for the final shooting a fantastic
124 ex 125
