Elena Allen, Amber Hill and Sarah Gray’s combined qualifying scores saw Great Britain win their first ever women’s skeet team gold at the Shooting World Championships in Granada.

And there was plenty more to celebrate for Allen (pictured) who also walked away with the silver medal after losing to Brandy Drozd of the USA by only a single score in the women’s skeet. Allen’s result also secured Team GB a 2016 Rio Olympics quota place in the process.

“I’m ever so pleased to get the silver – I did not want another bronze medal,” said Allen, who won bronze in Lima in 2013.

“And getting the quota place for the Olympics is fantastic.

“It’s been tough, during training it gets extremely stressful as the competition nears but I’m so pleased with how I handled the pressure.”
