More than 300 shooters from 44 countries are competing in Tucson this weekend, with the hopes of qualifying for the world championships.

“It’s an international competition, a lot of international flavor," said Kevin Neuendorf, director of media and public relations at USA Shooting. "We’ve got a lot of Olympic medalists, and they’re ready to get the season started. And what better place to do it than in sunny Tucson?”

Included in those top athletes is Great Britain’s Amber Hill. The 16-year-old skeet shooter is currently ranked eighth in the world.

“The weather is lovely, and I’m just really enjoying myself," Hill said. "It’s nice to have a bit of a change, and I just can’t believe how many layouts there are here.”

The trap and skeet shooting competition is taking place April 10 to 14.

The event is free to the public.
