The British Shooting shotgun contingent were in fine form at the first International Grand Prix of 2018 in Malaga. 

Amber Hill’s performance in skeet was the pick of the bunch in Jarapalo, as she shot 170 to secure silver. Marjut Heinonen took gold and Victoria Larsson, bronze. 

Other successes include Mike Wixey’s bronze in Men's Olympic Trap and Abbey Ling’s bronze in Women’s Olympic Trap.  

In Women’s Junior Trap, GB took all three podium spots, with Lucy Hall, Maddie Purser and Ellie Dixon winning medals and taking gold, silver and bronze respectively. In Men's Junior Trap, Theo Ling performed fantastically to take top spot and win gold while Lewis Owen won bronze. 

Other notable performances came from Sarah Wixey was was just one spot away from the medals in fourth, and Sharon Niven in fifth. Ed Ling was sixth in Men's Trap. 

In Paratrap GB won four medals, with three of them coming in seated and one coming in standing thanks to George Glover’s bronze. 

Allan Ritchie took gold in seated Paratrap, with Alec Sperling winning silver and Paul Bailey bronze. 

Paratrap shooter, George Glover, said: “It’s great to have won bronze. This was a great experience for me and has been good to have support at this event and to have someone to discuss my shooting performance with. It has been good to have feedback during competition."
