Congratulations to Amber Hill, ‘Young Sports Personality of the Year’

Ireland --(Ammoland.com)- It was great to see Amber Hill win the BBC Sport’s  ‘Young Sports Personality of the Year’ Award on Sunday night. Earlier this year, the 16-year-old became the youngest winner of a senior World Cup in skeet shooting.

Hill finished the season ranked number one senior in Great Britain and number five in the world.

This recognition of Amber’s hard work and success can only improve shooting’s profile, especially in the eyes of young people, and it comes at a time when CAI are lobbying hard for a reduction in the minimum age for supervised shooting in Northern Ireland.

This should help our young shooters compete at both national and international level and we look forward to seeing our young shooters find success.
