Peter Wilson

The moment Peter Wilson fell to his knees after becoming Olympic Champion is etched on people’s memories as an iconic moment of London 2012 winning Great Britain's first Olympic shooting medal for 12 years.

Peter’s journey to the top began trouble-free when six years ago the teenage Wilson discovered the double trap and within months he was Great Britain's junior champion, training at the Southern Counties shooting range. Fast forward four years and Peter became one of 49 aspiring athletes to lose their funding, and he was forced to seek work as a waiter at his local pub. At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, as part of Great Britain's Olympic Ambition Programme, a chance meeting with Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum, a member of the ruling family of Dubai and double trap gold medallist at Athens in 2004, led to Ahmed agreeing to coach Peter for free.

The son of a Dorset farmer and a Dubai Prince may seem like an unlikely pairing; however the Dorset marksman quickly rose to world number one in the double trap rankings in August 2011 after a superb season in which he won gold at the World Cup circuit. He collected team silver in the European Championships last year, along with Sydney gold medallist Richard Faulds and Steven Walton, and this year set a new world record in the double trap with a remarkable score of 198 out of 200 gaining quota spots for the British team for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

In a recent interview with the BBC, Wilson said: ‘Winning is down to a physical and mental combination and I've got to be as positive as I can be… I want to put myself in the best possible position to perform at the highest level in London. If I stand there thinking I've done my absolute best, then I'll be happy.’

At 25 years old, Peter was the youngest competitor for the Olympics in the men’s double trap event. The 6ft 6in Olympian is not a difficult man to spot and his enthusiasm is infectious. His full Olympic journey is fascinating and one in which he can deliver with charisma.
