Three members of the Carmarthen Rifle and Pistol Club Juniors recently flew out to Ireland to compete in the Commonwealth Shooting Federation (CSF) which is the Commonwealth Games for shooting.
Steffan Herdman brought back a silver medal, Lucy Thomas a silver and Siwan Burrell a gold. Lucy and Siwan also brought back gold medals in the pair's competition.
Therefore, three gold medals and two silver medals go to juniors who were shooting in a senior match whilst competing in a world class competition.
There is a lot of high tech equipment in the shooting world however all three, along with their coach John Kelman, train in a 40ft shipping container on paper targets. Although only small, Carmarthen Rifle and Pistol Club seem to achieve high results. For such low key, modest facilities these are truly remarkable people.
No doubt we will see more of these shooters in the not too distant future at National and International Competitions. Club members and their personal coach are extremely pleased with the results. Well done all of you.
