Shooting with the Chapmans

 

IT WILL be hard to know whether David Chapman or his daughter Hayley Chapman will be the more nervous of the pair when the women's 25m air pistol at the London Olympics gets underway on Wednesday.

As Hayley, 20, shoots for gold in her Olympic debut, her father David will be in the stands, taking a break from preparations for his own Olympic shooting event to cheer his daughter on.

David Chapman, a farmer from Hoyleton in South Australia, says having his 20-year-old daughter alongside him in the Australian team in London makes these Olympics a bit more special.

He described Hayley as "competitive by nature".

"She probably knows it all, but it is a matter of remembering it and putting into practice what you are supposed to do," David Chapman said on the eve of the Games.
