London 2012 Olympian Rory Warlow heads a strong squad announced by British Shooting for the next three shotgun World Cups.

The first action of 2015 sees the world’s best shotgun shooters head to Acapulco, Mexico, at the end of February before attention switches to Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates the following month and then Larnaca, Cyprus, in April.

There are five World Cup shotgun events scheduled for 2015 with the final round seeing a return to Cyprus, this time in Nicosia, in October.

Before then comes the summer European Games in Baku and World Shotgun Championships, with British Shooting aiming to get matters off to a good start, selecting 21 shooters in total for the opening World Cup rounds.

Warlow, who finished 16th in the men’s skeet in London, is one three skeet shooters chosen to represent Great Britain in all three of the opening World Cups – Mike Gilligan and 2013 World Cup gold medallist Amber Hill the other two.

Double trap shooter Tim Kneale and trap shooters Aaron Heading, Rod Gould and Abbey Ling are also selected to compete in all three.
