Bhagwat adds to gold tally

Bhagwat celebrates gold number four
India's Anjali Bhagwat picked up her fourth gold medal of the Games in the women's 50m rifle event.

Team-mate Raj Kumari took silver with Roslina Bakar third.

Bhagwat's winning total of 678.0 was a new Games record and means that India have now collected 11 golds in the shooting.

It was Bhagwat's fourth gold of the Games after her victory in the 50m three positions and the 10m air rifle singles and pairs events.

England's Mick Gault, who became the most successful shooter in Commonwealth Games history on Thursday, had to be content with bronze in the 25m standard pistol.

India's Jaspal Rana won the event with 567 points.

South Africa's Frederick van Tonder beat Gault in a shoot-out for silver.

"I was quite nervous and a bit put off," said Gault, who had already won gold in the 50m pistol and the air pistol singles and pairs.

"I didn't expect to have a shoot-off. I haven't done one since Victoria in '94.

"I haven't really trained for that, mentally or anything. I got the result I deserved."

Canada's Metodi Igorov won the men's 25m rapid fire pistol title.

Bruce Quick of Australia was second with Allan Stuart McDonald of South Africa picking up the medal.

Australia's Lauren Ogilvie pipped team-mate Natalia Rahman in a shoot-off to win gold in the women's skeet singles.

Edith Barnes won bronze to give Scotland their second shooting medal of the Games.

"I'm absolutely thrilled," said Barnes, who has only been shooting the skeet discipline for three months.
