Making his Olympic debut in Rio, Willett moved through to the semi-final after finishing tied with Germany’s Andres Low as the pair shot 140/150 to both set a new Olympic record. Willett then shot 26/30 to enter a shoot-off to get into the bronze medal match but missed on his second shot to finish the event in 5th. Willett won the 2020 Commonwealth Championships which doubled as Australia’s first Olympic selection event. His overall performance in the four-round series put him seven points clear of nearest rival Thomas Grice and secured his Tokyo selection.
