I couldnt have wished for a better partner. In this sport you just have to go all out, hold your nerve and today, we looked to creep up on the Italians and Germans and see where we can make gains. Everybody went out fast from the whistle. I had a bit of a slip at the start but I just had to keep focussed. I think I shot the first shoot clean and then it was all down to the legs from there.Rachels team mate, Oliver Vass, added: I am absolutely ecstatic. Two years training for myself and I feel like for both of us its a dream come true. We knew it was going to be a tough, tough race, it was the hardest race of my life but we got what we came here to achieve.The last week weve been trying to prepare as best as we can, both psychologically and physically but that was just a fantastic result for us.Today was all about going back to basics and sticking to what youve been taught. We have the process drilled into us by our coaches and the support of the teammates around us also helps.British Shooting would like to say a huge congratulations to all the athletes competing in Target Sprint in Changwon, as well as Head GB Coach Martin Beard and the whole support team.
