RGB Building Supplies is sponsoring up and coming target pistol shooter, Chris Glover.

Future Olympic hopeful receives a boost from RGB

Published:  24 October, 2014

RGB Building Supplies is delighted to be sponsoring up and coming local target pistol shooter, Chris Glover, helping him to further his career and pursue his ambition to represent Great Britain at both the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.

Mr Glover, aged 16, began pistol shooting in 2012 and while representing the Devon Scout Team at the Scout Inter County competition, caught the eye of the Great Britain Junior Pistol Squad.

Most recently, he represented Great Britain in the Junior International competition, which took place at the home of UK shooting in Bisley, Surrey. Mr Glover thoroughly enjoyed competing against shooters from other countries, including America, Germany and South Africa and gained valuable experience. He took lessons learnt from this competition into the Welsh Open Airgun championship, where he made it to both finals. He is also hoping to go on to compete in the Netherlands in February.

Mr Glover said: “Like many sports, being a pistol shooter is not cheap and I would like to say a big thank you to RGB Building Supplies for their support; the sponsorship will be a great help.”

Rob Allen, operations manager at RGB Building Supplies, added: “We fully recognise that young sportsmen and women face a number of challenges in pursuing their sporting ambitions and it’s important to us to support talented people local to us. We truly believe that Chris has a bright future ahead of him and are pleased to be able to support him with this sponsorship.”
