Two Minute Tip: Faye Wills

Faye Wills is an Olympic Skeet Shooter from Kent who is on the British Shooting Talent Pathway. Faye is a sweetheart and a superstar who shares a brilliant tip with us this week. 

What do you shoot?

  • I now only shoot Olympic Skeet competitively, having transitioned from English Sporting and English Skeet, but I do shoot English Sporting for fun and for charity.

How did you get into shooting?

  • I started working at a shooting ground in Kent where I was given cheap rates for lessons after I decided I should learn about gun safety and got hooked the moment I took the first shot!

What’s your biggest achievement?

  • My biggest achievement so far was representing my county at the regional Inter-Counties Championship in Olympic Skeet. It was the first time I’d been on a team in my chosen discipline and gave me the drive to go further. The team spirit was wonderful!

Who would you like to shout out for helping you the most?

  • I’d like to shout out my husband Tony, for his constant and unwavering support; my dad for driving me to the British Shooting Talent Identification Day that changed my shooting career; my mum for her support; my brother for being my sports photographer; my coach David Dale for persisting with me even when it seemed like I’d never get the hang of Olympic Skeet; my friend Charlotte for creating videos and taking photos of my journey; and finally my sponsors, HMS Host and William Moore and Grey Gunmakers.

What’s your biggest ambition with your shooting?

  • Like a lot of athletes, my biggest ambition is to make the Olympic team. I know I still have a lot to perfect and it takes time to be good enough, but I’m excited for the challenge and ready to continue my journey!
