Scottish shooters aiming to repeat medal success
09 July 2002
Scotland has announced a powerful shooting team for the Games.
The squad includes four medallists from the 1998 Games, Janis Thomson, Robin Law, Susan Jackson and David Rattray who are hoping to repeat their success.
Louise Martin, chairman of the Commonwealth Games Council for Scotland (CGCS) said: “We have selected a strong team, with everyone who has met the selection criteria going to Manchester regardless of overall numbers. Our minimum target is to improve on our medal tally in Kuala Lumpur and I am confident that this can be achieved given our thorough preparation and thanks to the support of our team sponsor Bank of Scotland, Sport Scotland and many others.”
Following feedback from the 1998 Games, the athletes will be supported by an increased team staff, which again reflects the requirement for increased medical and sports science support including doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists and analysts.
The main party of the Team will travel to Manchester on Monday 22 July.
The shooting team are:
Edith Barnes, Susan Jackson, Alice Ogilvie,* Sheena Sharp, Lynda Sinclair,*Janis Thomson,* Sinclair Bruce, Bob Carroll, Jim Cole-Hamilton, Stuart Cumming, David Gillies, Kevin Gray, Robin Law, David Lewis, Bruce Lilburn, David Marello,* Ian Marsden, Donald McIntosh, David Rattray, Alan Ritchie, Ian Shaw, Martin Sinclair, Mike Thomson, Colin Will.
