Sian and Jenny had a successful weekend away bringing home 3 medals between them including 2 golds. After a very early start and a long drive up on the Thursday both arrived ready for the weekend's shooting at the Commonwealth Shooting Championships (European Division) - CSF(ED).

Sian started the competition in the pairs air rifle event on Friday morning. Sian and her pair Rhian Floyd set a new Welsh record by 11 points to win the event by some margin. Sian took 2nd behind Rhian in the individual event later in the day narrowly missing out on gold after a good final.

Despite a disapointing weekends shooting, in the 3p individual event Jenny entered the final in =1st place, and a steady final was enough to win by nearly 10 points.

Both of us had a great weekend thanks to the excellent competition organisors and volunteers at both the ranges. The cake at the range was lovely too :)

Sian and Jenny have a week off to recover, in which Sian will finally finish her degree :), before the Welsh Open in Cardiff on the 3rd and 4th of October.
