His pairs team mate Parag Patel won Bronze with a score of 403 - 45v. 

In Men's 3 Position Rifle, England's Dean Bale secure a fantastic Bronze afer qualifying for the final in third positon with a score of 1163.

Over in Shotgun, it was a Wales and England Gold and Silver in Olympic Trap, thanks to fantastic performances from Mike Wixey and Aaron Heading respectively. 

The win for Wixey comes just a day after his wife Sarah won a Silver in Women's Trap - giving Mike extra motivation to go on and secure top spot. 

Mike said: "This feels great. I was trying to keep calm and keep in the moment and managed to do that so it was good. I took one at a time and they seemed to come alright. 

"It was a strange feeling because when she won it I was quite envious knowing that I was going to be shooting today and it gave me added impetus to give it that bit more. I wanted to make sure I won one as well!"

Team England's Ed Ling also qualified for the final but finished just outside the podium positions in fourth.
