Want to get to know our Olympic superstar Catherine Skinner a bit better? Our top shooters are so often only asked about their competitive pursuits, so for something completely different, I collared her for a few minutes to find out her likes and dislikes, how she likes to administer her toilet paper and what character she would be on Game of Thrones, for my new series of posts called 20 Questions…..
