Paul Shaw will be making his fifth Pan Am Games appearance at TORONTO 2015. It will be the fourth major Games at which he will compete alongside son Drew, following Guadalajara 2011 and the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games. The elder Shaw has won three medals at the Pan Am Games: silver in team trap and bronze in individual trap at Indianapolis 1987 as well as silver in team trap at Mar del Plata 1995. He had a dream come true in 1996 when he competed at the Olympic Games in Atlanta. Shaw made his ISSF World Championship debut in 1994 when he achieved a career-best placement of fifth in the double trap. In his nearly-three decade international career, Shaw’s career-high ISSF World Cup result in the double trap is seventh, achieved in 1993 in Los Angeles
