Entry 90, added by Jenny.
Double gold for Jenny in France!
Team wales airrifle medal number 2!

After a disapointing weekend Jenny came back in style as she travelled to France as part of a Welsh team to compete in the 5Nations. The 5 Nations competition is a small annual international between Lorraine (region of France), Saarland (Region of Germany), Luxemburg, Belgium and Wales.

On thursday the team travelled out by coach, and on friday afternoon there was an oppertunity for training on the range.

Saturday started poorly as a under par performance in the airrifle. Jenny finished up 4th in a low standard competition she was more than capable of winning. However, recently Jennys focus in training has been on the 3p diciplines, in which she competed saturday aftternoon. After a solid 20shots prone, Jenny had what can only be described as an awsome standing finishing on 7 10s! It nearly all went wrong in the kneeling with an awful first string, but she did enougth to achieve a new personal best and to take gold comftabaly.

Sunday was prone day, an event in which Jenny has recently struggled. However a solid performance earned her a 2nd personal best and gold medal. She was closely followed by team mate Sophie who took the silver.

Then just the fun of the long coach journey home!
