Guernsey's full bore shooters Adam and Peter Jory finished just four points short of the medals in the pairs competition at the Commonwealth Games.

Competing over 1,000 yards on the final day of their event, the brothers moved up to fourth position, a few shots behind the English bronze medal team.

The brothers put in an outstanding performance to move up from 11th to finish with a total of score of 680.

In the singles, Adam was 19th and Peter 22nd out of a 42-strong field.

All three of Guernsey's male cyclists finished in the top half of the field in the final cycling event at the Commonwealth Games - the men's time trial - which was held in temperatures exceeding 100F (38C).

James McLaughlin was the top rider in 17th place with a time of 54 minutes and 55 seconds, seven and a half minutes off the eventual winner Scotland's David Miller.

Josh Gosselin was in 24th place in 57 minutes and 16 seconds, and Tobyn Horton finished 27th in the field of 60 riders in 58 minutes and three seconds.

Speaking just after his gruelling 40-kilometre ride, a rather tired McLaughlin said he had mixed feelings about the result, revealing that the heat and smog meant the conditions were like "hell on Earth."

McLaughlin said: "On the way back it was very, very hard and you could almost feel the sweat condescending on you and almost feeling cold rather than hot, it was really weird."

In the women's time trial, Ann Bowditch rode well to finish 19th in a field of 28 riders.

Her time over the course of 29 kilometres was 46 minutes and 18 seconds, which was seven minutes and 20 seconds off the time posted by the gold medal winner, Tara Whitten of Canada.
