Jonny Borland

Jonny started shooting at Dollar Academy in 2001, and first discovered the wonderful world of Bisley that same year. Since then, he has shot for the 2007 World Championship winning GB Under 25 team, and was placed seventh individually in the Under 25 World Long Range Championships in Canada . . . a mere six places behind fellow handsome teammate (and Scot) Peter Seebohm. A record breaking NRA tour followed in 2010, as did a veritable romp into the Queen’s Final.

Jonny has represented Scotland since 2002, and in 2011 helped them retain the National for the first time since the early 20th century. One of three athletes funded by sportscotland to travel to the World Championships in Brisbane, Jonny is also training in the Scotland High Performance Squad towards the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014. This is his first GB cap and second tour to South Africa, where he hopes to continue to be unbeaten in all team matches, and with any luck catch a Super Rugby game as well as vast quantities of steak.

Away from shooting, Jonny works in private equity for SL Capital Partners in Edinburgh. He can usually be found on the golf course, rowing a boat, lifting something heavy, doing something dangerous on the side of a mountain, or failing those: standing outside Domino’s Pizza waiting for it to open.
