June 2015 - Ross Elgie (33) from Masham in North Yorkshire has been selected to represent England in the British Skeet Clay Pigeon Team for 2015.
Ross, who works as a CPSA Coach at Warren Gill Shooting Ground, Masham, has this weekend gained his place in the team, shooting a magnificent 394 out of 400 in a gruelling four day event to become one of the 10 man team.
Ross was late coming into the sport after joining his parents to work at their prestigious shooting ground.
Ross said: “I am extremely proud to be representing my country in a sport I enjoy so much. I have pushed myself and remained disciplined throughout the last 12 months to ensure I was ready to meet with this challenge.
He adds: “I enjoy many sports and treat shooting like any other. I ensure my body and mind are focused for the challenges I face and this allows me to compete to the highest standards. I would love my next step to be into the Olympic team.”
Ross works for Warren Gill Shooting Ground, one of the few shooting schools in Great Britain that concentrates on teaching people to use guns or improving the already experienced shooter. Warren Gill have also this week won, for the third year, the “five star award from TripAdvisor”, which is no mean feat for a small family run business.
