Australia’s shooters have produced three outstanding Commonwealth Games medals yesterday: two gold and a bronze, at the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre, near Carnoustie.
The big-fella of pistol shooting, Daniel Repacholi (Nulkaba, NSW) began the medal count for Australia, with a bronze medal in 50m Pistol. The medal is Repacholi’s second at the Glasgow Games, after he took the Men’s 10m Air Pistol gold in a thrilling final.
The 32-year-old miner from Cessnock has created history by winning medals in both his events at this edition of the Games. Repacholi qualified for the 50m Pistol final on a total of 543, and fought hard during the final, missing out to India’s Gurpal Singh who took the silver. The gold went to India’s Jitu Rai.
