Rachel Parish (L) and Charlotte
Kerwood (R) of England share the
joy of winning gold and silver in 
the Women's Double Trap Pairs.

England has won gold and silver in the Women's Double Trap Final at the Melbourne Gun Club.

Charlotte Kerwood scored a convincing win with 106 targets from a possible 120. However, the outcome of the bronze medal is still pending an appeal.

The 19-year-old gold medallist bettered her own Games record of 104 which she set in Manchester 2002.

Silver went to Rachel Parish with a total of 101 targets out of 120.

The English pair dominated the Double Trap events after winning gold in the Pairs event.

Parish, competing in her first Commonwealth Games, was overwhelmed by her second placing, crying with delight.

In an exciting finish, Canadian Cynthia Meyer and New Zealand's Nadine Stanton each finished on 97 targets. In the shoot-off for bronze, Meyer won after Stanton missed the second target.

However, the New Zealander complained of a trap malfunction during the shoot-off and is in talks with the shooting jury regarding the verdict.

In a close contest, the Men’s Double Trap Final has finished with another gold for India.

With only one point separating each medallist, India’s Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore was impressed with the level of competition during the event, saying "This is a world class field. It is as good as competing for the World [Championships]."

South Africa’s Byron Swanton finished with a score of 180 and William Chetcuti of Malta 179.

South Africa’s team manager, Andre Wessels, stated that it was the greatest day of Swanton’s life “The work he has put in has given him some reward."
