AirTouch is always on the lookout for passionate individuals who strive for greatness, set ambitious goals, and possess the dedication to achieve them. With that spirit, we’re incredibly excited to announce our sponsorship of young South Australian clay target shooting talent, Molly Bretag. So far, her sporting career has been a journey of determination and precision.

From Local SA Ranges

Molly has been actively involved in the shooting sport for nearly 8 years now. Her initiation into the discipline commenced at 12, South Australia’s legal age requirement for the sport. “Both of my parents have been involved for long periods of time, my father is a foundation member of the Monarto Clay Target Club and has been President of the club for 14 years. My mother has also been involved for quite a long time, running the club’s canteen and being treasurer,” Molly says, “Therefore, most of my weekends were spent at the gun club…After a while, I got interested in the sport and at the age of 12 I started competing and have loved it ever since.”

Molly’s early years were dedicated to the Down the Line discipline, a popular choice in Australia. This format involves targets that move at speeds of around 60kmph, covering distances of approximately 48m, and shifting 22 degrees to either side of the centre.

However, Molly’s relentless pursuit of challenge led her try the Olympic Trap discipline two years ago. Here, targets jet across the range at a whopping 100kmph, spanning 75-80 meters and swinging 45 degrees on either side of the centre. The heightened difficulty of this discipline underscores Molly’s ambition and love for the sport.

A Glimpse of What’s Ahead

Molly has charted an aggressive schedule for the upcoming year:

  • National ISSF Championships: in Brisbane Slated for January 2024.
  • New Zealand National Championships: In early February 2024, Molly will be representing Australia in the Junior Team.
  • Domestic Selection Events: Molly will be competing in these, spread across various locations, eyeing qualification for the 2024 World Cups, World Championships, and the much coveted Paris 2024 Olympics.
  • 2024 Junior World Championships in Lima, Peru: Another feather Molly aims to add to her cap.

She is also keen on exploring and participating in other international events she qualifies for during this period and is always aiming for more.

Diving Deep into ISSF Trap

For Molly’s words, “Olympic Trap is the pinnacle of Clay Target Shooting sports, as I find its one of the most challenging, demanding and mentally exhausting disciplines of shooting. There are 15 traps within the ‘Trap house/bunker’ and 3 are allocated on each of the 5 stations that you shoot from.”

“I love the simple satisfaction of breaking clay targets. Period. I also love the people and travel that is combined with the sport,” says Molly. She relishes the camaraderie the sport fosters, the opportunity to travel, and the mental and physical demands of the sport.

For Molly, she enjoys that Clay Target shooting is an inclusive sport “I also like that the sport is accommodating for both males and females, young and old (from the age of 12 to 90) and the ability to accommodate for people with specific disabilities”

Aiming for the Stars

Molly’s ultimate dream? Winning an Olympic Gold. A testament to her lofty aspirations, this dream is the pinnacle of sports achievement, and we’re thrilled to support her on this quest. “I would love to win an Olympic Games one day… This is an obvious choice, but it is the pinnacle of each sport and being the number 1 in the world, is something I do aspire to achieve.”

Join us as we cheer on Molly Bretag, a young talent set to leave a mark on the shooting world. We’re honoured to be part of her journey and are eager to witness all the milestones she’s bound to achieve!
