Four Brit golds at CSF

Jen McIntosh, Seonaid McIntosh, David Luckman and Parag Patel pocketed golds at the Commonwealth Shooting Federation Championships held at the Belmont Shooting Complex in Brisbane.

The event, which served as a test event for the Commonwealth Games ranges, was shot across all the rifle, pistol and shotgun disciplines, and saw England and Scotland finish third and fourth in the medal table respectively, behind India and Australia.

First, there was a ‘battle of the McIntoshes’ in women’s rifle prone, with just 0.8 separating the two after 60 shots. In the end it was Jen who triumphed with 620.7, and with no final in this event, the medals were settles – gold for Jen, silver for Seonaid.

It was Seonaid who topped the podium in the women’s 3p, however. She qualified in first place with her older sister in second; in the six-woman final, Jen took the early lead but struggled with her standing shots, exiting in fifth. Seonaid, however, shot brilliantly to take gold by more than eight points from England’s Katie Gleeson.

In the fullbore rifle, the results were a repeat of those in the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Luckman and Patel teamed up to take the pairs gold, then Luckman went on to triumph in the individual event.
