Jean Quiquampoix

Paris-born Jean Quiquampoix won silver for France in the Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol Shooting at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, just two years after becoming a junior world champion.

Aged 10, his family moved to the Mediterranean resort of Antibes, where he later discovered a shooting club and was competing from the age of 14.

Quiquampoix's promising results saw him selected by France for the 2012 European Championship in Bologna, where the-then 16-year-old won gold in the junior category. He came fourth the following year.

He began to be integrated into the senior France set-up around the time he became world junior champion in 2014.

That was to be his final event on the junior circuit and his performances were very impressive in the 12 months leading up to Rio 2016.

At the Games, he qualified for the Final in third and went on to finish second, ahead of the Chinese duo Li Yuehong and Zhang Fusheng.

However, Germany's Christian Reitz proved too good, equalling the Olympic Games record to take the gold.
