Colin Renwick, Achille Boswell and Carl Boswell were part of the NSRA Rimfire and Air Rifle Benchrest Team GB who went to Plzen this summer to compete in the World Cup and European Championships. While the overall team had quite a lot of success, Achille and Carl came away with a number of medals and overall awards. Achille won 3 European Junior medals including one gold, one world cup junior silver medal and and adult team silver medal. He was also one of the few to shoot a 250 score at 50 metres and I believe the only junior to do this.
Full scores can seen on a number of pages on the international federation pages, but a short overview can be seen below;
