Help me to Achieve

Update posted by Scott Farlam On Oct 19, 2017


We are finally back from the Laser Run World Champs in Cape Town, SA.

With a Team Silver medal, Girls U11s.

It was an amazing experience for Reya representing Team GB on an international stage. Reya competed in both the individual and mixed relay events. She finished 11th overall in the individual and 7th in the mixed relay with her teammate Sebastian. For the individual race Reya shot a perfect 5 & 5 and was the first British girl to finish in the U11s category. The mixed relay was more of a challenge in wet and windy conditions, the race start was delayed due to heavy rain, she was not happy with her shoot, but held her composure and put in an really determined run, Sebastian shot well and finished strongly. The races were very tough for all the visiting teams with most age groups being heavily loaded with host nation athletes. The U11s Girls having 27 entries, 19 being from South Africa. The U11s mixed relay of 15 entries 11 were from the home nation. Unfortunately the mixed relay was not without controversy, a false start by several SA teams was ignored by the officials and the international guide lines were also not strictly adhered to. Reya and Sebastian did brilliantly against the odds.

Reya really enjoyed representing Great Britain. The coaches were pleased with her performance and very happy with her attitude.

She has only been shooting since January, competing against children that have been doing it for several years. Getting her own pistol will help her to practice more often, gain confidence and really push herself. The speed of the shoot is a massive factor.

She will be competing in other pentathlon events which involves the use of a laser pistol, Triathlons and Triathle. https://www.pentathlongb.org/

It would be great to raise enough funds to get a pistol which will last her a lifetime.

Thank you all that have contributed so far.

Proud Daddy, trying to help, not a pushy parent at all. Sport should be fun.
