Richard played wheelchair rugby for over 14 years, before he decided to shift his focus after discovering he had a talent for shooting at the Disability Target Shooting Great Britain National Championships in 2008. He continued to dedicate himself to training and was selected to represent ParalympicsGB at London 2012.
On his Paralympic debut at London 2012, Richard placed 16th in the R4 10m air rifle standing mixed SH2.
At Rio 2016 he improved on this result to achieve an 11th place finish in the same event.
The four-time British Champion in the R4 10m air rifle standing mixed SH2 marked a number of successes in the Rio Paralympic cycle. Achieving the highest qualifying score at the 2014 IPC Shooting World Championships in Suhl, Germany stands out as one of the highlights.
Richard is a father of three and away from his sporting career hobbies include travel, fishing, and driving off-road buggies.
