Team GB’s Ed Ling finished 21st in the preliminary round of the men’s trap competition at London 2012 last week, as Olympic shooting competitions drew to a close.

Ling, 29, was in 15th place going into the final round at the Royal Artillery Barracks, but scored just 21 out of 25 to finish with a total of 118, missing out on qualification for the final.

He said: “I realised that I needed to hit all of them in the last round to stand a chance. I missed the first target out because the light was rolling up and down a little bit, so I just doubted where I was looking. Once you start to doubt, that’s it.”
