RSA International Match

This morning was brimming with anticipation as our first international match, the RSA International, was scheduled for the afternoon. With the team announced yesterday, our armourers had spent yesterday evening making the required ammunition tuned to each of the shooters rifles.

U25 RSA International

Tuesday’s dawn broke with slightly cooler air on a fresh breeze and 3 of the top 4 places of the Grand Aggregate occupied by GB team members (the other being a GB Vet Jeremy Tuck).

Start of the Grand

The SABU Grand Aggregate starts today, and with that the traditional opening ceremony at 7am. All nations competing are invited to raise a flag after the SA National anthem and official welcome from General Mack.

Featured Team Members

Nick Tremlett
GM SB
England
Cap #:
661
Big 5 Caps:
59

Long in the shooting tooth is a fair description of Nick – and that was 5 years ago! Shooting at international level since 1976, Nick has the distinction of having toured with GB before most of this team were born. Dabbling in both target and match rifle Nick has won the Queen’s Prize and the Hopton, and a few other trophies along the way. He was captain of the undefeated GB team to South Africa in 2017, a tour during which he also won the South Africa President’s Prize. By profession he is a semi-retired vet, and has had to minister to ailing team members on previous tours – much to their consternation!

Seth Dowley
England
Cap #:
927
Big 5 Caps:
6

Seth started shooting at school with Cheltenham College when forced to choose a weekday activity and quickly became hooked on it. During Ashburtons and early tours, he found he particularly enjoyed the view from the coaching chair. He has gone on to coach his county, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, as well as England in the National and Mackinnon, and GB on their recent Canada 2022 tour. He has previously toured with the UK Cadets, Athelings, and the GB U19 and U25 teams including two lots of World Championships in the USA and New Zealand. He is looking forward to returning to South Africa, his last trip having been in 2014.

Away from the range Seth works as an investment adviser for charities, corporates, and private clients and keeps fit with running, skiing and squash.

Hannah Cook
England
Cap #:
936
Big 5 Caps:
1

Hannah’s introduction to shooting sure isn’t the norm. At the tender age of 7, she could be found shooting tin cans in the garden, but was finally taken to a ‘real club’ at the age of 11. At the age of 14, she got the ‘Bug’ for international shooting, and competed at the 2006 World Championships in both 50m prone (Junior Women’s), and 300m (Senior Women’s). While studying at Wellington College, she began her Target Rifle career, breaking her Tyro at the first attempt. The Team to South Africa is her debut on the GB Target Rifle stage, and she is hoping to bring some of her extensive GB knowledge with her.

Off the range, Hannah can be found donning on her Physiotherapy uniform and working on a respiratory ward.

Chloë Evans
Wales
Cap #:
885
Big 5 Caps:
26

Chloë first picked up a rifle in 2008 at Gresham’s School under the leadership of Freddie Grounds. Since then, she has been lucky enough to tour Jersey, Canada, West Indies and USA representing OGRE, GBU25 and GB. Chloë represents Norfolk & Wales and is especially proud to have been part of Wales’s historic first win in the National in 2016.

In 2022, Chloë was honoured to be selected to shoot the Kolapore, made her 7th HM Queen’s Final and made the top 10 in both the Grand Aggregate and the St George’s Final. This will be Chloë’s 3rd Great Britain tour but her first visit to South Africa and she is greatly looking forward to the challenges Bloemfontein holds. Away from shooting, Chloë is a keen reader and avid sports fan (particularly rugby) and more recently, to stave off lockdown boredom, got into running.
