Amber Hill is the youngest ever Skeet World Cup gold medallist and was the youngest member of Team GB’s shooting squad for Rio
Hill made the semi-finals in Rio, eventually finishing sxith on her Olympic debut.
The Windsor-born shooter’s debut for Team GB came at the 2015 inaugural European Games in Baku where she took gold after a thrilling final shoot-off with Italy’s Diana Bacosi – holding her nerve to hit 30 out of 30 clays for the top spot on the podium. The gold also secured Team GB’s second skeet spot for Rio 2016. Hill then capped off her 2015 in style by winning gold at the ISSF World Cup Final in Cyprus.
Hill competed for England at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and in the same year won World Championship gold in the skeet team event. In 2013, Hill won the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.
