Melbourne-based shooter Craig Henwood made his Olympic debut at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Henwood contested the men’s trap, finishing 31st. Coming from a family of shooters, Henwood competed at his first Nationals at 16 years of age in 1994. Three years later in 1997 he won his first national junior title and made the senior team in 1999. After watching the Athens 2004 Olympics, Henwood was motivated to improve with Beijing in his sights. In March 2008, Henwood edged out Olympic bronze medallist Adam Vella to secure his place on the 2008 Olympic Team.
