Toby shoots to success

Toby shoots to success

Year 7 student Toby Aberdeen will become RGS's first ever representative at the British Shooting Schools' Pistol Championships this January.

The Scottish Schools' Pistol Championships was Toby's first major pistol shooting competition and being able to secure second place overall, which was also RGS's first ever pistol shooting medal, was a tremendous achievement. 

Toby has also recently been selected to be a part of British Shooting's talent pathway, which is developing young talented shooters who have the potential to compete on the world stage, with the hope that they'll qualify for the Olympics in Paris 2024 or Los Angeles 2028.

This achievement caps off a superb year for Toby who has also competed on the international stage for GB in the European and World Triathle Championships.
