Lucy's Coach John Kelman writes:

I am pleased to announce that one of our Welsh Pistol shooters has been nominated for the Carmarthenshire Radio Awards.

Lucy Thomas

Lucy was nominated by her College, Coleg Sir Gar in Llanelli. A member of the Carmarthen Rifle and Pistol Club, she won the Young Sports Star of the Year Award. An overall award was also given out that evening - The College Sir Gar Young Achiever Award - which Lucy also won.  

It is a great break through for colleges, schools and the Education Department to recognise Target Shooting as a sport. Lucy and myself can be seen in the photograph. Although I might be 6ft 2in tall, I look up to Lucy for her hard work and achievements.
