The British Shooting Target Sprint Festival in Yate was held on the first weekend of October and saw great achievements and performances by many athletes from the GB and German Target Sprint Teams. On the Saturday, as a conclusion to the ISSF World Tour, the heats proved exciting to watch despite the rainy conditions, with the athletes putting in some great efforts.
The National Series Final brought together athletes from all over the UK who had previously qualified at the many events held earlier in the year. These heats and finals again proved successful and also provided one of the most exciting finishes over the weekend in the Youth Male Class with Harrison Pepper and Jonathan Williams throwing everything they had into the competition - including themselves over the line - to share the Gold Medal after the photo finish failed to separate them.
