Amber Hill has won bronze at the ISSF Mexico World Cup. 

Competing at 11pm GMT on Saturday, most shooting fans will have missed the news flooding through on social media, and will be waking up this Sunday morning delighted to hear Amber has secured her first World Cup medal of 2018 - to add to the silver she won at the Malaga Grand Prix. 

Going into the event number 5 in the World Rankings, Amber shot 42 targets out of 50 to pocket another Mexico World Cup medal after the gold she won at the ISSF World Cup in Acapulco (MEX) in 2013. 

The 20-year-old was followed by Slovakia's Danka Bartekova and People's Republic of China's Wei Meng, who respectively placed 4th and 5th, but gold and silver went to the USA's Kim Rhode and Caitlin Connor.

And with it being Mother's Day today, we thought we would speak to Amber Hill's mum, Jo, who was absolutely delighted with her daughter's performance. 

Speaking after the win, Jo said: "Amber has put in some fantastic performances over the last few months and I'm so proud to see her win bronze in Mexico. 

"She's so dedicated to her sport and is always looking for ways to improve which is key to being a world class athlete! 

"Although she can't be here in the UK for Mother's Day, it's the perfect present that she has won bronze in Mexico and I can't wait to congratulate her when she gets home."
