Peter Seebohm

Peter started .22 small-bore shooting at St Albans School as a part of the Duke of Edinburgh bronze award scheme; he then continued at Oundle School pursuing the gold award. At Oundle he was introduced to 7.62 fullbore rifle. 

At Cambridge University he found the Rifle Association and stumbled across an excellent group of friends who have provided years of competition, entertainment and support. Epitomised by his shooting CV on tour in 2007 the important things in Peter’s life are:  1) CURA, 2) Study, 3) Girlfriend. Things have changed since graduation: 1) CURA, 2) Fiancee, 3) Work. Peter has been strictly informed that by September it must be 1) Wife, 2) CURA, 3) Work, but the jury is out.

In 2007 Peter shot his first Elcho, first National and toured with the victorious GB U25 team to Canada, winning U25 team and individual Golds at the World Championships. On tour he met a fellow Scot, a man with an appetite only matched by his immense good character, Jonny Borland; the one piece of advice I have for fellow team mates on this tour is not to ask Jonny to share his food.

In 2008 Peter toured in Matt Charlton’s NRA team to the Channel Islands with Ben Stevens, a rival from Oxford and great friend. We have often shot against each other; now we get the opportunity to shoot together.

Peter trained as an accountant with Simmons Gainsford LLP, who have provided an excellent training programme with a breadth of experience and exposure to clients. Living and working in London, he is looking forward to representing GB in South Africa and winning.
