Following a magnificent build up to the Games, Team Scotland fielded its largest team ever, with 310 athletes meeting the selection standards for the Games. A record haul of 53 medals, 19 gold, 15 silver and 19 bronze to finish fourth on the medal table, was just reward for the huge team effort that made the whole of Scotland proud.

It was the Clay Target discipline that reached the podium first with a silver for Drew Christie in the Skeet event, making up for his fourth place in Delhi. In the 50m Rifle Prone, Delhi gold medallist Jen McIntosh shot steadily throughout and finished strongly to take bronze, but other world-class shooters including Scotland’s Jon Hammond in the men’s event fared less well in the conditions, to miss out on the final.

The following day with a medal already in the bag, Jen returned with renewed confidence in the 50m Rifle 3 Position. The lead changed hands several times in a nail-biting elimination round, going down to the final shot when it took a Games record by Jasmine Ser from Singapore to beat McIntosh, who had to settle for silver. This medal helped Scotland reach its target of 34 plus medals and in the process Jen became Scotland’s most decorated female athlete in Commonwealth Games history, overtaking her mother Shirley in the record books.

There was also a second successive Commonwealth Games medal for Full Bore shooters Ian Shaw and Angus McLeod winning bronze in the Pairs to give a total of four medals for Shooting.

Team Leader – Donald McIntosh

Coaches – Lindsay Peden (Fullbore), Iain MacGregor (Clay Target), John Leighton-Dyson (Pistol), Sinclair Bruce (Rifle)
