BCRA Life Member Alexander (Sandy) Peden will be one of this year's (2015) inductees into the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame (Athelete Category).
Excerpt from letter written by BCRA Past President WD Adams nominating Sandy to the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame:
From Sandy’s sports biography it is apparent that he has had a long and very successful competitive target rifle shooting career. Representing both British Columbia and Canada with distinction.
He has represented Canada on numerous occasions in international competition, both as a competitor and later as a coach. He has a Gold Cross win in Canadian National competitions in 1981. A further highlight of his competitive shooting activities would have to be representing Canada as a competitor at the Commonwealth Games in Brisbane Australia in 1988 and again in Auckland New Zealand in 1990.
To add to Sandy’s sport accomplishments in later years he was chosen to coach our Canadian Full-bore Rifle team at the Commonwealth games in 1998 and 2010 where the team won both silver and gold medals. He was also hired by the government of Malaysia to develop their rifle team for participation in international competition where his charges earned numerous medals and awards.
Sandy also served seven years on the 1994 Victoria Commonwealth Games committee acting as chairman of all the shooting sports for these games contributing greatly to their success.
Congratulations Sandy from all your fellow shooters for a job well done.
