David is currently the Individual World Champion and is relishing returning to Bloemfontein after a 10 year absence since shooting there for the GB team in the ’99 Palma Match. His successes in the UK are numerous and include fourteen consecutive Grand Aggregate crosses (including one gold and two silver ones), thirteen St George’s badges and twelve Queen’s badges (including coming 2nd twice). David started shooting with Sedgemoor Target Shooting Club and has captained the Somerset county team for the last eight years. He was an Atheling in 1994 and has since become an experienced tourist with both GB and England teams. He has previously visited South Africa in 1998 and 1999, and hopes to improve upon his 3rd place in the 1999 South African championship. David works for Lloyds (formerly HBOS) in Bristol as an Actuary. To take his mind off the credit crunch, he is a qualified tennis coach and avid sports player in his spare time, competing in triathlons and half marathons as well as enjoying mountain biking, surfing, and swimming amongst others. However his bachelor days are numbered as he is getting married in September.
