World Cup gold for GB women’s Olympic Trap team

Great Britain won gold in Women’s Olympic Trap at the ISSF Croatia World Cup.

The team – Charlotte Hollands, Kirsty Hegarty and Sarah Wixey – won 6-4 to overcome Russia in the gold medal match in Osijek.

Speaking after the match, Charlotte Hollands (centre of photo) said “It’s great to be out there with these girls and it makes you feel better when they’re standing next to you.”

Kirsty Hegarty (right of photo), who competes in Tokyo 2020 later this month, added “It’s been brilliant. The whole team has shot really well and it feels amazing.”

In the Men’s Olympic Trap team event, Matt Coward-Holley, Nathan Hales and Aaron Heading missed out on a medal despite qualifying for the bronze medal match against Croatia.
