Eleanor’s Rome Adventure!

Eleanor has returned from her first International shooting for Great Britain in Rome and finished the highest placed GB Cadet Girl. Following the initial ranking round she was unfortunately drawn against her GB team mate but, on beating her, then found herself drawn against the fourth seeded Slovakian who was on her fifth international trip and the last as a cadet before becoming a junior the following week. Much to her GB team mates’ delight Eleanor took her to a tie break where she unfortunately lost by 1cm as she shot a nine and her target companion a ten!

In the Team round she and her team mates beat USA but then lost to Poland to end up in the Bronze medal match where they narrowly missed out on a medal to come a commendable fourth place.

She had a wonderful time and was also able to spend a day sightseeing in Rome itself and is looking forward to seeing all her WAC friends back at the field.
