Other sports

Public facilities for other sports in the village are limited, but two young international sportsmen train here, and both are preparing for the 2000 Olympics.

Richard Faulds is an outstanding clay pigeon shot. He competed in the 1996 Olympic Games and came 5th. He won both the Junior World Championship and the European Championship four times, and as a junior came 2nd twice in the FITASC overall World Championship, which was unprecedented. As a senior he is the British, European and the world record holder in Double Trap shooting.

Mike Ellicock represented Great Britain first as an oarsman at the World Junior Rowing Championships and then trained as a triathlete (running, cycling and swimming) and competed for Great Britain in the World Championships at both junior and senior levels.
