🌟Scholarship Recipient Highlight🌟

Neelam O’Neill - Shooting Para Sport Athlete
I was introduced to shooting as a kid, where my step-father and I used to shoot ice-cream containers and cans on family camps. I was then re-introduced to shooting at age 15, when I competed in the National high-school Small bore competition where we shot .22 rifles. My team placed top 20 and the following year my new team placed first. In 2011, I moved to Auckland for university and discovered air-rifle shooting through Parafed Auckland - Para Sport and Recreation.
I officially joined the Parafed Auckland Shooting Club in 2012 and began competing nationally in 2013. My first overseas competition was for an Australian Grand Prix in Sydney, 2014 and since have travelled to Australia (Sept, 2015), Thailand (Nov, 2017) and UAE (2019) for the World Shooting Para Sport World Cups.
