Scott secures double trap bronze in Granada

Steve Scott insisted it was job done after claiming double trap bronze at the Shooting World Championships in Granada.

Commonwealth Games champion Scott was full of confidence heading into the semi-final stage, having finished the qualifying round just one clay short of top spot.

But the 29-year-old got off to the worst possible start to the semi-final as he missed his first two clays.

However, Scott turned things around by hitting his next 28 clays to reach the bronze medal shoot-off, finishing on the podium by beating Italy’s Daniele Di Spigno 27-26.

“I'm really happy,” said Scott. “The World Championships is next in line to the Olympics.

"I came here to win but to get a bronze medal is more than good enough for me."

Rachel Parish also won double trap bronze but due to a lack of entries in the women’s discipline the event was downgraded to a Grand Prix as opposed to a World Championships.
