Jennifer McIntosh followed in her parent’s footsteps to become a professional shooter who both competed internationally.
Donald McIntosh, Jennifer’s father, competed at the Commonwealth Games 2002 in Manchester, has won two Commonwealth Championships and is now the Head Rifle Coach for British Shooting.
Her Mum Shirley competed at the Commonwealth Games 1994 and 1998 where she won gold, silver and two bronze medals over the two Games.
Both Jennifer and her Mother have held the crown for most successful female athlete at a single Games within the Scottish team.
Jennifer won Bronze at the 2010 World Championships in the Junior Women’s Prone.
At the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, Mcintosh won Gold in the Women’s Prone Individual, Gold in Women’s Prone Pairs with Kay Copland and Bronze in the Women’s 3x20 Pairs, again with Kay Copland.
Following a disappointing London 2012 Olympic Games, McIntosh certainly improved to become the most decorated female
medal winner in Scottish history with silver and bronze at the 2014
Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
At London 2012, the Edinburgh born shooter
finished 36th in the women’s 10m air rifle event and 42nd
in the 50m rifle three positions.
McIntosh competed in two events at the Baku
2015 European Games, finishing ninth in the 10m Air Rifle and seventh in the
50m rifle 3 positions events.
In 2015, McIntosh finished fourth in the
50m rifle 3 positions event at the European Championships in Slovenia, securing
a quota place and ensure that in 2016, she represented Team GB at the Rio Olympics.
