Shooting gold medal in men’s double trap pairs

Shooting gold medal in men’s double trap pairs.
There was also a bronze medal for England?s James Huckle, his second medal of the Games, in the men?s air rifle individual event.

Scott and Stevan Walton out-shot the Indian team, racking up 189 points to set a new Commonwealth Games record and take the lead by just one point.

Speaking to Sportsbeat news agency, Steve Scott said: ?I finished my final round five minutes before Stevan, so I was able to go up and support my team-mate.”

At that point the scores stood at 142-141 to England, but when Walton missed a bird midway through his final round it went to level pegging – until India’s Asher Noria missed one of his birds on the final double.

?Stevan stayed really cool and smoked both his birds,” Scott said.

?He was quite shocked when he turned round and I told him we had the gold and gave him a big kiss.?

?Even if he had missed one of his birds, we would still have won on countback. But it was great to win by a clear point.?
