Seonaid McIntosh has won an Olympic Quota Place for Team GB after finishing fourth in 50m Rifle 3 Positions, at the ISSF World Championships.
The result rounds off a fantastic World Championships for the Scottish shooter having already secured an individual gold and a team bronze earlier in the week.
To add to that, Seonaid has also broken or equalled three British Records while competing in South Korea, twice as part of a team and once individually.
Her qualification score of 1175 in 50m Rifle 3 Positions equalled the current record. While earlier in the week she broke the 10m Air Rifle Women’s record as part of a team with Hannah Pugsley and her sister Jen McIntosh, when they shot a combined 1861.4.
Her final record was part of a team with Katie Gleeson and again sister, Jen, when they shot a combined 3471 in 50m Rifle 3p.
Speaking after securing a Quota Place for Team GB, Seonaid said: “I’m really happy to have won a Quota Place this early, although at the same time I’m a little bit disappointed not to have won a medal. But the job was to get the quota and I’ve done that plus have the bonus of the Prone medal from earlier in the week, so all-in-all a successful trip.
"It’s certainly going to make my final year at University a bit easier now that I have a quota place!
“The Prone result did help me a bit as it proved to me that I did belong at this competition. But it was the elimination match yesterday that really helped me because I learned what I did wrong to make it better today.
“I’d like to say a massive thank you to all my sponsors and funders that have supported me to get to this point. I couldn’t do this without the financial support I receive from the National Lottery, UK Sport and Heriot Watt University as well as the fantastic all round support that I receive from Sport Scotland, British Shooting and Winning Students.
“Also, a huge thank you to the wonderful people who provide my kit, Edinkillie Sport Services, Kurt Thune, Grünig and of course Eley, thank you so much for your continued support.”
