Steve Robertson, Life Sciences Controlled Environment Manager, will be participating in the Great Britain Disability Shooting Team selected to compete in Alicante at the 2013 IPC Shooting European Championships. The competition will be the first major gathering of international athletes since the London 2012 Paralympic Games, with around 350 competitors from 35 countries set to attend. The European Championships will be the most important event for the sport in 2013 and a crucial stepping stone on the way to the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.
Steve made his international debut in 2009 at the IPC Hessian Trophy in Germany. Earlier this year his performance helped Great Britain take home team gold in the R6 50m Rifle Prone Mixed SH1 competition at the International Shooting Competition of Hannover.
