About Peter Wilson
In 2012 as we all saw he made his Olympic dream come true. Peter Wilson’s route to the top was no fairy tale! He only took up the sport in a serious way after dislocating his left shoulder in a snowboarding accident. Without being able to pursue mainstream sport whilst still at Millfield school in Somerset he chose to shoot one handed once a week at Cheddar Valley Shooting Ground.
He left Millfield, at the age of 18, National Schools Champion in the domestic discipline of English Sporting however without the prospect of financial support he would no longer be able to continue training or competing to the level he’d grown accustomed. To qualify for funding at that time you had to prove your worth on the international stage in one of the 3 Olympic disciplines of Trap, Skeet or Double Trap. In March 2006 after much deliberation Peter chose to focus entirely on Double Trap – 6 months later he won the European Junior Championship in Maribor, Slovenia. From that point on Peter became one of 55 fully funded athletes on the World Class Performance Program over which UK Sport presided.
