At just 21 years of age, Amber Hill has already made her mark as an award winning sport shooter. In fact, in 2013, she made history as the sport’s youngest ever winner at the International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup series; a feat that saw her crowned the BBC’s Young Sports Personality of the Year, at the age of 15, joining the likes of Wayne Rooney, Andy Murray, Ellie Simmonds and Tom Daley, who have also won this coveted award in recent years.
Amber began shooting at the young age of ten and spent the next couple of years in small shooting competitions across Berkshire. At the age of twelve, she was called up to England’s senior women’s team with a specialty in skeet shooting, and has gone on to win three gold medals in major international competitions. She was part of Great Britain’s shooting squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, at the age of 18.
Amber is a strong medal hope for the forthcoming Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
