OGCC at the Long Range Rifle World Championships


OGCC now boasts not one but two international marksmen. Alfie Hellings was selected for the GB under 21 team at the Worid Championships in Trentham, New Zealand and joins Charles Brooks who has previously shot for and captained the senior GB side. Charles is also at Trentham as a coach for the GB Veterans.


The under 21’s shot well on Monday 28 January but ended up in fourth place with the home New Zealand team taking the honours. Alfie shot well individually and got the top score in the GB team with 188 out of 200, joint seventh individually on the day.

The GB Veterans came an incredibly close second to Australia in their warm up match, with a tie on 1,895 points only decided on the number of bullseyes scored.

Well done to both and good luck for the remainder of the Championships!
