Graihagh Guille – a first-year PhD student doing research in the university's Centre for Aquatic Environments - followed winning the Women’s 50m three-position English Championships in May by winning the British championship title early in June, then coming second in the open Welsh Championship.
Three-position involves firing 20 shots in the kneeling, prone (lying down) and standing positions at a 1cm bull, 50m away. It is the main Olympic shooting discipline, where weather conditions can provide an extra challenge – such as wind blowing bullets around in flight.
Graihagh took up .22 calibre shooting just a few years ago when she was 17, inspired by her father Matthew Guille, a Commonwealth and European medallist who still shoots for the GB team today. She is now a member of both the England rifle development academy and the Great Britain development squad.
