Another World Champion Title for Digweed

Gamebore Pro Shot George Digweed MBE crowned 2023 World FITASC Champion using White Gold

Taking place in Gánt, Hungary, the 45th World FITASC Championship was hotly contested by over 1000 international participants. The venue, formerly a mine with layouts situated in disused quarries providing the perfect setting for FITASC targets to challenge clay shooters of the highest calibre.

In some glorious, hot weather conditions over the four day championship, the competitors gave it their all to produce some fantastic results, but ultimately, it was George Digweed's year, and his score of 186/200 simply could not be beaten. 

His epic performance bagged George his 28th overall World Champion title. A feat that no other athlete in sporting history can boast, and likely never will. It is simply remarkable that George has remained at the top of the game for all this time, showing no signs of stopping. We are extremely proud of our long established association with George, who uses our White Gold cartridges.

Following his victory, George said "Well I wasn’t necessarily expecting that!" adding "Hungary has produced a World Championship that totally delivered the FITASC remit, not glorified Compak, proper Formula 1 sporting! Where you can have an ordinary round one day but still shoot yourself back in to contention in the next."

"It’s been a toss-up whether we were in a shooting competition or an iron man contest this week, but if I have managed it most should have been able to!" 

"The FITASC family has had a great week. I’ve been lucky at this one and it will be someone else’s turn next, but rest assured our sport has delivered this week and that’s what matters".

Many congratulations George, from all at Gamebore!
