US trapshooters might remember our dear friend, Bill Iles. Leo met him almost 40 years ago when the ATA sent him to Australia to shoot their Nationals. Bill and Leo felt an instant friendship that stretched around the world. Over the years they both traveled to shoot together, most recently, Bill came to Sparta in 2013 and brought his family, which included his grandson, Mitch.
Mitch will be going to Rio to shoot in the Olympics, after working very hard to earn a place on the Australian team.
