Geikie also won a bronze medal at the 2006 Commonwealth games
Devon shooter Georgina Geikie is determined to stay upbeat after losing her funding from British Shooting.
The 25-year-old, who won bronze in the 25m pistol pairs at the Commonwealth Games, is no longer one of the six athletes funded by British Shooting.
Geikie told BBC Sport: "It makes you hungry to show what you're made of.
"I've got 100% confidence in my own ability and having this cut may seem like a setback but actually it makes me more determined to go to the Olympics."
UK Sport provides British Shooting with £2.45m to fund six athletes over a five-year period.
Geikie was previously one of the six, but has been taken off the list following a bi-annual performance review, and will now have to source funding herself for competitions and training.
At the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, Geikie took bronze in the 25m pistol pairs for England alongside Julia Lyndall with a score of 1122. The duo finished behind Australia [1146 points] and India, whose score of 1156 was a new Games record.

In order to qualify for the Olympics in 2012, Geikie will have to impress at the four World Cup events over the next two years - held in Australia, China, America, Germany.
She said: "Getting to a World Cup competition is going to cost £1000 per trip and going to the World Cups is all part of the selection procedure for the Olympics, so it's vital that I get there."
Geikie will also start the search for a new coach, following the resignation of her existing coach Peter Flippant.
British Shooting declined to comment.
