Steven Scott produced a nerveless display to claim double trap bronze ahead of Team GB teammate Tim Kneale at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Scott joins Ed Ling in winning the second shooting medal of the Games for Britain.
After prevailing in a shoot-off to reach the bronze medal match with Kneale and Australia's James Willett, Scott was faultless on his way to securing a medal. He found the target with each of his 30 shots to end with a 100% record, with Isle of Man competitor Kneale missing twice.
Scott is coached by Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Hasher Al Maktoum, who orchestrated Peter Wilson's gold medal in the same event at London 2012. After making his Olympic debut in Beijing he emulates his friend Wilson and beats Kneale – who has previously shot a world record score of 148.
"I can't put it into words but I can put it into a big massive smile," Scott told BBC Sport. "Amazing, absolutely amazing. The light conditions here are not the best. The targets were a little bit tricky with the wind and the rain pushing down on them but we all had to shoot the same targets so it's all good and I've come out with a bronze medal.
"It was like a British summer and without a doubt it definitely benefitted us. [Ed Ling winning the first shooting medal] meant a lot as well. To see my family and friends here it is just amazing. It was a case of one of use switching off under pressure. One of us was coming away with a bronze medal. we both had a little cuddle before we came on."
