All GB shooters in action on Friday at the IPCS Shooting World Cup USA made their respective finals with Stewart Nangle and Roy Carter securing direct slots to take the number of direct slots for Rio to nine.
Carter qualified top in P1 with an international PB of 573 while Nangle was 8th with 563. Carter maintained his form in a field of top quality shooters to take Bronze while Nangle finished 7th. Both however did enough to earn Rio direct slots.
In P2 Issy Bailey comfortably qualified for the final with a score of 368. With only one direct slot available it was always going to be difficult and she performed credibly in the final to finish in 7th. Bailey still has one last chance in P4 to win a direct slot.
Owen Burke continued his fine form to qualify for the R7 final in only his second international match in that event. He finished 8th in the final but the experience will stand him in good stead as he looks to continue to progress in the event.
On the final day of competition there will be final chances to win quota places in P4 and R6 whilst GB will be looking to take home a medal in the R5 event.
