A Slough aspiring Olympian has taken home a silver medal from the British Shooting School Rifle Competition.

Anmol Bhargava, 12, lives in Farnham Common and started shooting just 10 months ago.

She said: "About a year back, me and my dad went to Burnham Target Shooting Club  for a tester session and I loved it."

On February 8, Anmol participated in her first competition at the school championship organised by British Shooting at Cannock, where she participated in the 10metre air rifle precision shooting - which is an Olympic sport.

Anmol said: "I was overjoyed to win the silver medal at the championship as this was my first competition and I have only been shooting for a year.

"I now want to win the gold.

"At the end of this month I will be shooting in the British Open Airgun competition and then the Eley competition."

Anmol aspires to be part of the UK Olympic squad and counts Ruth Mwandumba and Harley Raine among her role models.

Anmol's father Prashant Bhargava says she is a "shooting star" and her first competition was a "jaw-dropping experience."

"We are very proud of how calm and focused she was during the knockout stage," Prashant added.

British Shooting run the competition annually and students from all over the country are invited to take part.
