Congratulations to Sophie H who was awarded Junior Skeet Athlete of the Year at the British Shooting Awards held on Saturday 7th January in Leeds.
Sophie received that award jointly with her mixed team partner, Mitchell B S, for their incredible performances on the world stage including being Junior European and World Mixed Team Champions.
This showpiece event for the sport saw awards for Junior and Pathway Athletes, Target Sprint athletes, Para Trap athletes, Paralympic Shooter of the Year, and Olympic Shooter of the Year.
