Worlingham’s Eddie Graver becomes national shooting champion
Saturday saw Worlingham's Eddie Graver become the 2012 British Junior Men's Air Pistol champion.
Competing at the British Airgun Championships at The National Shooting Centre, Bisley – where his dad Andy won the senior men's title last year – Eddie's efforts were made all the more rewarding for him as just before the end of last year, he had pneumonia and it has taken him a few months to fully recover.
Adding to that, he is studying for his A-levels as well.
He had an excellent score of 551 in the qualifying stage, which placed him second going into the final. After the first of 10 shots, he went into first where he remained for the remainder of the final.
He also won the B-class competition, competing against many senior shooters.
