What's new? (1 Aug '17)

It's nearly 12 months to the day that Aislin walked out into Maracana Stadium in the front row of the Australian Olympic Team. It was an amazing experience which will be celebrated in a couple of days.

Life hasn't slowed down much this year, and the next few months don't look like being any different. Aislin returned from Suhl in Germany after taking the Silver medal at the ISSF Grand Prix, held in conjunction with the Junior World Championships for Pistol & Rifle.

She was even joined on the podium by her good friend Esmée Van Der Veen who claimed the bronze.

The week after arriving back in Melbourne she flew to Brisbane for the Queensland State Championships, which were also the third of the five Commonwealth Games team selection events. Aislin finished top qualifier into the final and after a very tight final took the gold and added 15 points to her lead in the Commonwealth Games selection. Chloe Tipple from New Zealand claimed the Silver and Tash Lonsdale the Bronze. While there Aislin & Chloe had the opportunity to check out the new range being built for the Commonwealth Games. Both were very excited at the thought of shooting on it. It's a spectacular facility, and with luck it will be retained after the games. The test event for the new range will be the Oceania Federation Championships in November, so there should be no need to wait for April 2018.

Today they announced the location for the 2024 & 2028 Olympics as Paris & Los Angeles. Having seen the videos & photos of the construction of the amazing complex for the Paris games bid, Aislin's plan now extends past Tokyo! You'd think she may not have to wait though as a facility of that standard in Europe would probably host several international events before then.

Aislin flies to Darwin for a training camp in mid August and the Northern Territory ISSF State Championship, before heading to Moscow for the World Championships at Fox Lodge Shooting Centre north of Moscow.

In March & April, Aislin competed at the ISSF World Cups in New Delhi & Acapulco. Just her second and third WC respectively they presented two more experiences at international competition. Aislin placed 23rd in New Delhi & 12th in Acapulco. She is currently ranked 29th internationally, and remains the youngest on the ISSF Women's Skeet International Rankings as the only athlete who's birth year starts in the new millenium.

In January Aislin backed up her win in 2016 by taking the Commonwealth ISSF Women's Skeet Championship in Perth, but narrowly missed out to good friend Esmee Van Der Veen from The Netherlands in the National Championship. Aislin still took the Overall High Gun over the two events with a new record high gun score for the Australian National Championships. Both Aislin & Esmee shot scores at the event that qualified them for consideration for their respective national teams to travel events later in 2017.

Aislin claimed 8th place at her debut World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan. Shooting 70/75, she missed the shoot off for semi final places by one target but said from Baku yesterday that she's learned a lot from the event and is keen to build on that experience. After the conclusion of the qualifying rounds, in another first Aislin was invited to co-commentate the finals which can be seen on the ISSF YouTube Channel here.
