Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. OK, so it's the Junior Mens' event, but it's shooting, and GB won the team event, as well as the individual title.

    Matthew Thomson

    GB Team

    For those who are genuinely curious, here's a feed of the AMS screen for Matt Emmons (won a gold, threw away a gold at the last Olympics); it's not quite to scale (the bull should be 10.4mm across, the bullet is 0.22), but bear in mind the following.

    The target is 50m away, it's outdoors (it's been fairly windy conditions, apparently), and that's shot from the standing position. And he's only in second place.

    (Strings 1..4 are prone, 5..8 are standing, 9..12 are kneeling)

    PS The Ladies' Trap team have now won Silver in the team event, with a fourth place in the individual.
