Richard started shooting at Marlborough College, but really discovered the joys of target rifle shooting at Cambridge. Since university, he has progressed via the County of London and GB under 25 teams to full international honours for Wales, with 10 appearances in each of the National and Mackinnon matches, and for GB as a member of the winning 2007 and 2011 Palma teams.
This is his 11th overseas tour, and 5th with GB, having previously had the privilege of shooting in Australia, Canada, the Channel Islands, South Africa and New Zealand. As a very steady rifle platform, the success enjoyed by each of those teams in their respective main tour matches takes pride of place, even though individual victory in the World Individual Long Range Championships in 2011 shows that occasionally he can read his own wind quite well.
Away from the range, Richard works as a solicitor in London.
