Biography

Alex Maunder and Charles Palmer were the only members of the winning clay pigeon team a the 1908 Olympics who also won silver medals in Stockholm four years later. In the 1908 team event, Maunder made a vital contribution to the British success by beating the Canadian, Walter Ewing, who won the individual title, by two points – the margin by which Britain defeated Canada for the team title. Additionally, Maunder won a bronze metal in the 1908 individual clay pigeon event. Although Alex Maunder was not a member of the 1920 Olympic team, he was selected, at the age of 63, for the 1924 Games but asked for his name to be withdrawn in order to give a younger person a chance. Alex Maunder was a long-time resident of Palmers Green and a member of the North London, Ealing, Middlesex and National Gun Clubs. He won the championship of the Clay Pigeon Shooting Association three times during the years when the event was considered to be the world championship. Maunder died of a heart attack while taking part in a billiards tournament at the local institute of the Devon village to which he had retired in 1929.
