Shooter Sarah Gray says she was delighted with her performance at the Commonwealth Games despite missing out on a medal after finishing fourth in the in the skeet competition at Carnoustie.
The 27-year-old from Woodchurch, near Ashford said: "Everyone wants a medal but I’m thrilled with how I performed. It’s my first Commonwealth Games, my first major event shooting with a big crowd.
“I was as nervous as anything in my first round in the morning so to make the final and to shoot that well – I’m just really pleased.”
Gray won a three way shoot-off to win a place in the semi-finals, and then faced another, after finishing joint-second of six, missing her first clay in a battle with Wales’ World bronze medallist Elena Allen to lose on sudden death, leaving Gray to face Cyprus’ Andri Eleftherious for bronze.
Both players were locked at six successful shots out of eight at the mid-way point, but a double miss proved costly for Gray, and despite nailing her final four targets, she lost by a single shot to finish a cruel fourth, having been a shot away from silver moments before."
