She was subsequently selected to shoot in a Great Britain Under 25 match whilst on the tour and went on to achieve the top score which won them the match.
In 2011 Lauren then came to Lancaster where she studied Business Management. Whilst studying for her undergraduate degree, Lauren travelled again to South Africa with the full Great Britain team in 2012. Since the tour, Lauren balanced studying for her degree with a commitment to both the Yorkshire Rifle Team and England.
Just before graduation, Lauren was selected to represent Great Britain in the Under 25 World Championship team. The team will be travelling to the USA to compete against the USA, Canada, Australia and others in a series of international fixtures culminating in a fight for the prestigious U25 World Championship match.
The Great Britain Under 25 team has had an illustrious history of wins in the World Championships in 2003 and 2007 and have high hopes to win in 2015. Our squad comprises of a 2014 Commonwealth Games athlete, experienced senior Great Britain Rifle Team internationals, and 2014 Commonwealth Games trial lists.
Unfortunately, as this is not an Olympic discipline the team is, therefore, not eligible for government funding. If you would like to support this team of young shooters please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Lauren on 07809725313. Visit the website to follow their story.
