Today marks the start of the CPSA World English Sporting Championships here at EJ Churchill Shooting Ground, in Buckinghamshire, with the targets set by internationally renowned 26-time world champion clay shooter, George Digweed, brand ambassador for EJ Churchill.
Each of the shooters taking part in the championship will shoot the 200-target competition over two days, shooting both the red and blue courses on the picturesque West Wycombe estate. Over the forthcoming days over 1,400 shooters will test their skills on the course, over three sets of rotations – Tuesday/ Wednesday, Thursday/ Friday and Saturday/ Sunday, when the international teams will go head to head.
After day one of the World Sporting, Aaron Harvey is currently leading the championship with a superb score of 91, but the question is whether he will do enough tomorrow to retain the High Gun title for the rest of the week.
Meanwhile in the World Sportrap, Prelim Sporting and Open FITASC there have been changes in leadership on the scoreboards with the Americans taking the top spots in Sportrap. Currently sitting in the position of High Gun on the World Sportrap is Braxton Oliver on a score 90 ex100, closely followed by Kevin De-Michael and Dominic Gross. On the Prelim Sporting competition Aaron Harvey is in pole position with his score of 94 ex100 and finally on the Open FITASC Michael Hibbert is leading the way, with a score of 93 ex100.
