GLasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games - Fullbore Events
Our congratulations go to the Scottish Fullbore Pair for winning Bronze at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow...well Barry Buddon, and of course especially to NRC of Scotland member, Angus McLeod.
He and Ian Shaw fought off tough competition during the Queens Prize Pairs Competition and achieved a Bronze with 590.65 (ex 600). Ahead were David Luckman and Parag Patel of England taking Gold on 595.77 while the Canadian team of Jim Paton and Des Vamplew took silver on 592.54.
During the individual Queens Prize competition, both did well and were slowly but surely moving up the ranks until the final distance when the wind finally decided to surprise everyone, which made for some interesting conditions and most of the competitors visited parts of the target they had never seen before. Ian Shaw ended up 9th, Angus McLeod 10th with David Luckman taking the Gold with a record 401.42 (ex 405), Jim Paton, Canada, Silver with 397.35 and Parag Patel, also England, Bronze with 394.35.
Many NRC of S members could be found on the range over the five-day competition, both as supporters and officials, doing a sterling job to make the Games a success.
