Brekke revealed afterwards that nerves had played a massive part as they held off their Scottish rivals by the narrowest of margins.

She said: "It's the culmination of a lot of hard work. I was very nervous because in other disciplines a lot of the countries have improved greatly and I wasn't sure what we would need to win.

"But I knew if me and Ceri did our own thing and shot like we should the pair of us were always going to make it."

Her partner was delighted with the win after living up to their billing as the gold medal favourites.

Dallimore said: "We were strong favourites and this is my best win because I have done it with Jo."

India captured their eighth gold medal of the Games when Jaspal Rana and Mahaveer Singh clinched the men's 25m centre fire pistol pairs.
