England’s’ Women Win Commonwealth Games Shooting Gold & Bronze
Charlotte Kerwood smashed her way into glory at the Commonwealth games in the double trap.
Charlotte, 27 from Sussex shot down 92 out of the 120 clays the Barry Buddon Centre in Dundee securing her third individual Commonwealth gold medal.
Rachel Parish, who also won pairs gold at Melbourne back in 2006, grabbed herself a bronze making it two medals for England.
Rachel, 33 finished with91 clays, level with Cynthia Meyer from Canada but succeeded in a sudden-death shoot off.
Kerwood began ahead of the pack with five shots looking calm and relaxed.
Missing a pair halfway through, she clawed it back over the final shots.
'It feels pretty good, I can't quite believe it,' Kerwood told Press Association Sport. 'The Commonwealth Games obviously like me, it's a good event to come to.
'I was laughing because I didn't realise I was five targets ahead at the start, so I thought 'no pressure!' Then I felt it was slipping away from me a little bit, which wasn't good. But now it feels amazing.'
'That will be good experience for tomorrow because now I know what to expect with the crowd and everything.
'There's no time to celebrate yet. Tomorrow is what I have been training for. My coach thinks I was crazy going for this one as well but I'm going to be more confident now.'
'I've practised doing that before with the other England guys, I knew what was coming and I knew I'd done it before and I could do it again - and I did,' she said.
'I'm disappointed with the way I shot today, I know I can shoot a lot better than that, so I'm really pleased to have come away with a medal.
'I think there will be some champagne now. Possibly a lot!'
