Wellington shooter Theo Ling has become a world champion at the age of 15. He competed at the Fauxdegla Premier Shooting Ground in Wrexham, becoming the World Junior Champion in the Olympic Trench discipline, which is notoriously complex. Fifteen traps are set up in a trench, each firing clays at different heights, speeds and angles. This makes it the most difficult form of clay pigeon shooting.
Theo, a Wellington School pupil, has his sights set on the 2020 Olympic Games and is the brother of Ed Ling, who competed for Great Britain in the London 2012 Olympics and has won the World and European Championships. His father, Stephen Ling, was a GB Olympic coach and British champion for the GB team.
