Amber Hill is an Olympic Skeet shooting finalist, she is one of Britain’s brightest and most exciting young talents.
After winning the 2013 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year awards, Amber’s feats were rightly recognised on the national stage. The then 15-year-old from Berkshire had burst onto the scene in 2012, equalling the Ladies World Record. In 2013, after a number of encouraging results, she travelled to the World Cup of Skeet Shooting in Mexico and became the youngest ever winner of a woman’s senior gold medal.
Amber had a remarkable 2015. In June, she won gold at the inaugural European Games in Baku. Against a very strong field, she got through to the final with a score of 73/75 and then won the competition after an enthralling sudden-death shoot-off. A few months later, Amber became the 2015 Skeet Women Champion after claiming gold in the World Cup final in Cyprus. Amber began 2016 in fantastic form, claiming gold at the Qatar Open, to set her up perfectly for the Olympics, where she was an Olympic Finalist at the age of only 18.
In what is a very traditional sport, Amber transcends the Skeet Shooting world with a mix of natural glamour, sporting excellence and the individuality she brings to the event. This hasn’t gone unnoticed within the broadcasting world, as Amber has already appeared on a great deal of entertainment shows and networks, including the BBC, Sky Sports and Sky 1’s award-winning A League Of Their Own Christmas Special.
