A former World and European Junior champion, Ed Ling has appeared at the Olympic Games on two occasions – Athens 2004 and London 2012 - and has also won the world and European universal trap titles.  

Ling finished 25th in the men’s trap in Athens before recording a 21st place finish at London 2012 in the same event.

At the 2014 World Championships Ling took silver behind Slovakia’s Erik Varga, which qualified Team GB a quota place for Rio 2016.
