Nick Brasier

Nick started target shooting at Cambridge University and, other than an aberration in the late 1980s when he focused on small-bore, has been a committed full-bore shot ever since.

This is his 7th GB tour and 2nd to Australia, having shot at Belmont in 2005. On his first GB tour to Canada in 1991, he won the Governor General's Prize in storm force winds. An experienced team shot with 15 'Big 5' appearances to his name to date, he has also had individual successes that include 16 Queen’s Final badges and 11 Grand Aggregate crosses, including the Gold Cross in 2002.

As a previous Captain of the Stock Exchange Rifle Club and Chairman of Shooting for the London and Middlesex Rifle Association on Bisley Camp, Nick has experience of running overseas teams, having organised and captained club teams to Ireland, Jersey and North America.  He was also Adjutant to the 2010 GB team to New Zealand. This experience encouraged the team’s management to devolve a lot of the travel logistics for this tour to him.

Nick is married to Gwynne. Fortunately for him, she also shoots; and fortunately for the team, she is an expert on dietary needs and has helped educate team members on the dietary requirements to maintain health and concentration during a long tour.
