Huckle is making his Commonwealth Games debut in Delhi
Harlow shooter James Huckle insists he is capable of taking gold at his first Commonwealth Games.
Huckle, 20, who has only just moved to senior events, will contest the 10m air rifles and 50m three positions.
He won three gold medals at the Commonwealth Youth Games in 2008 which were held in India.
Huckle told BBC Essex: "It's all experience but if I shoot the performance I am capable of shooting then the gold medal is in my reach."
He added: "Effectively, we're up against a world champion and an Olympic champion for my two individual events. They are Indian, so its going to be difficult."
Huckle added that he is not worried about stepping up to senior competition from junior events.
"Some of the best juniors are more than capable of competing at senior level, but the depth is just not there in the junior ranks," he said.
"You've got to be on form, every time you shoot."
Far from being nervous about taking part in Delhi, the 20-year-old says he's looking forward to taking part.
"We've had a few training camps and warm weather acclimatisation and they've gone really well. I'm feeling really good."
