James Miller Impresses At YOG

Team GB shooter James Miller secured a ninth place finish in the 10m Air Pistol at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires.the 18-year-old pistol shooter from Epsom was GBs only shooting representative in the competition, and he shot fantastically, scoring the same as his Kazakhstan counterpart but missed out on qualifying for the final on count back.James started shooting eight years ago with the Scouts and before long was promoted to the National Scout Squad. He has since gone from strength-to-strength and has been the British Shooting National Schools Pistol Champion for the last two years. The GB team for the Youth Olympic Games consists of athletes aged between 14 and 18 years old, with the competition providing crucial multi-sport experience for aspiring Olympians. Team GBs class of 2018 will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Tom Daley, Jade Jones and Duncan Scott who all went on to win medals at an Olympic Games having first competed at a YOG.Speaking after the event, James said: It was nerve-wracking at the end there. I knew Id done my best but then having to wait and watch the others finish and try to beat me and take away the chance of a final was a hard few moments.But knowing now that I did the best I could and to walk away happy with my performance is a nice feeling.Im really happy with the score. I came off the back off the World Cup event earlier this year not entirely happy with my shooting and a couple of areas so to score that today and shoot the way I did felt really nice.Everything was flowing well and but for a few lapses in concentration. Sometimes if youre too switched on then you end up working too hard but if its too far the other way then you can get distracted so its about finding the mellow medium where you can find a rhythm. I had that right in the middle when I shot a 98 and it felt great.For full results, click here.
