Trap Shooter James Willett made his Olympic debut at Rio in 2016 where he finished fifth in the Double Trap.

Willet changed to Trap after the Double Trap was removed from the Olympic shooting competition for Tokyo and, in 2019, he equaled the world record at the World Cup in Acapulco 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 Tokyo 2020.
