COROWA skeet shooter James Willett has added to his growing reputation by winning three national titles in Brisbane.
The 17-year-old won the junior titles in the Commonwealth Olympic skeet and the national Olympic skeet events, and the overall high gun title last week at Brisbane Gun Club.
Asked if he needed a bigger trophy cabinet considering his outstanding past 12 months, Willett said: “They give you sashes so they are easier to store.”
Willett shot 103/125 in the Commonwealth and 101/125 in the national event, his first foray into that category.
“That was my first competition at the Olympic version,” Willett said yesterday.
“I was pretty happy with my performance; I wanted to get to 100, that was my goal.”
Willett, who is entering year 12 at Corowa High School, will now turn his attention to national titles in Perth in April.
The championships in Brisbane were the first national titles in the world to implement a major format overhaul for the 31st Olympiad.
Among a host of changes, finals for all events were altered at the instigation of the International Olympic Committee to bring shooting into line with other sports.
