Charlotte Kerwood steadies herself for gold

An ecstatic Kerwood said: ďIt feels really good to be one of Englandís youngest winners Ė Iím just in shock at the moment. I donít know how I feel Ė I didnít expect a medal at all. Iíve done a lot of training here, so Iím really pleased.Ē

ďWhen it sinks in [at the ceremony], Iíll probably start crying. But it will feel really good. Iíve been shooting for three years, but only Double Trap for six months, so Iíve just started Ė I can get better.Ē

The silver was taken by Nadine Stanton of New Zealand with a final score of 33 and a qualification of 101.

Two Canadians took bronze medals, Cynthia Meyer with a final score of 34, and a qualification of 98. Meyer won a gold earlier in the double trap singles. Susan Nattrass, the other Canadian had a final score of 25 and a qualification of 68.
