PRESS RELEASE : SPORT : CLAY TARGET SHOOTING : CLAY TARGET DISCIPLINE : DTL TRAP
The event: British Open DTL Trap Championship
Held at : Banbridge Clay Target Club, Banbridge, Northern Ireland
Date : Saturday, 16th July 2022
Nineteen year old Christiaan Steyn, who joined the Clay Target Shooting Association of South Africa (CTSASA) in September 2015, has just returned from Northern Ireland with the Junior DTL Trap Trophy after winning the British Open DTL Trap Junior Championship.
Christiaan started shooting the disciplines of ATA TRAP and DTL TRAP and by 2019 had earned the prestigious Junior CTSASA Merit Colours and in 2022 Christiaan also earned the highly prestigious CTSASA Merit Colours as a Senior.
Christiaan qualified for Junior Protea Colours to shoot as a Junior in the DTL Trap European Championship, where he also participated as a member of the Senior Protea Team and earned his Senior Protea Colours.
The British Open DTL Trap Championship took place after the European DTL Trap Championship and was shot over 100 targets on the 16th July 2022. Christiaan shot an almost perfect score of 299 ex 300 (each target is worth 3 points) to take the Junior Champion Title.
In 2020 and 2021 Christiaan had qualified for National Protea Colours but due to the international travel restrictions he was prevented from participating in the designated events, which meant he could not be awarded his Colours.
Christiaan was determined not to let this stop him from trying again!
We sincerely congratulate Christiaan on his achievement and we know he will strive for even greater honours in the years to come.
