24th in 3p brings Jennys 1st WorldCup to an end
arrrifle range entrance 50m range

In the airrfle Jenny was disapointed with her result, of 392, a few points short of the PB she was aiming for. After a good start of 99,99 the pressure of the competition and fatigue of trying so hard took its toll for the last 20shots.

However with 3p elimination the following day there was little time to dwell, and the wind cirtainly wasn't about to make it easy! The wind was tricky to say the least leaving scores below where you would expect. While Jenny safely qualified for the next round her result of 564 was below where she would have expected. But to put it in the perspective the chinese shooter who went on to win also finished the elimination on 564!

The qualification was bright, early, chilly and slightly less windy! Jenny scored a PB of 574. For a result where she felt there were several areas to pick up points she was satisfied with the score after only 3wks 3p training having concentrated on air over the winter. She finished 24th place (or =19th score).

As Jennys first world cup draws to an end she would like to thank Wales for their financial support getting her to Korea, and Don Mac (Coach) and Sue (physio) for their assistance! Jenny now looks forward to the next World Cup in Fort Benning, USA in May where she hopes she can build on what she has learn't.
