Owen first discovered target shooting when he attended a ParalympicsGB Sports Fest in in Guildford in December 2012, where he had the opportunity to try a number of sports. It was shooting that captured his attention however, and he went away to join a local club in Porthmadog that was set up by Marcus Politis at Disability Sport Wales.
Since joining the GB team in 2013, Owen has competed at numerous IPC Shooting World Cup events, with one of the highlights being his 5th place finish in the R1 10m air rifle standing men SH1 event at Fort Benning, USA, in 2015 which secured a slot for Great Britain at the Paralympic Games.
In his spare time away from the range, Owen enjoys a range of activities, from photography and wood carving to a number of sports including quad biking, badminton, basketball and archery.
