Ling misses out on trap final

August 6, 2012 14:08 pm

Britain's hopes of adding to Peter Wilson's success in the shooting ended on Monday as Ed Ling failed to make the final of the men's trap.

The 29-year-old from Somerset watched Wilson win gold in the double trap on Thursday and began his campaign in the single-clay version on Sunday.

He was well placed after the first three rounds, scoring 72 out of 75, and started the morning with a perfect 25 to remain in the hunt.

However, Ling's final round of 21 left him well outside the top six who qualified for Monday afternoon's final.

Qualifying was led by America's Michael Diamond, who did not miss a single clay for a perfect score of 150.
