Going to Rio | Laetisha Scanlan

Laetisha Scanlan is one of Australian shooting’s brightest stars. The 26 year old pocket rocket is one of the Australian Olympic team’s secret weapons.

“I think because I’m so short and small people don’t expect me to be holding an 8kg shotgun,”

After just missing out on London selection in 2012, Rio will be her debut Olympic appearance, and make no mistake the dual Commonwealth Games champion has her target set on Aussie Olympic gold.

From the early days shooting as a youngster with her dad to snatching gold medals from the jaws of defeat, check out Laetisha’s incredible journey to Rio.
