Shooters strike gold in North Wales Airgun Meeting
The Carmarthen Rifle & Pistol Club, barely six months old, had four of its development squad go to Ellesmere College for the North Wales Airgun meeting. All four took part in the 10m Air Pistol competition, winning gold for the Senior Team event. Lucy Thomas won gold in the Senior Ladies 10m Air Pistol and was second in the Junior Ladies Air Pistol.
In the Olympic final, for the Senior shoot, the star was Lucy Thomas who got into the final by knocking out shooters with 30 years experience. The 12 year old went to first place, and unshaken by the pressure, Lucy won the gold medal.
The North Wales Championships coach John Kelman was proud of all four shooters, saying "Look out Tokyo, here we come".
