Trap Shooter James Willett is an NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) scholarship holder and an Australian Olympian.
The Mulwala resident made his Olympic debut at Rio 2016 where he finished fifth in the Double Trap event.
After representing Australia at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Willett changed to Trap after Double Trap was removed from the Olympic shooting competition for Tokyo. Despite the transition, the sharp-shooter went on to equal the world record at the 2019 Acapulco World Cup, shooting a perfect qualifying score before going on to take gold. Later that year Willet and partner Laetisha Scanlan took gold at the World Championships in the mixed trap.
Following his win at the 2020 Commonwealth Championships, Willet was selected on the Australian Team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
