Golden boy Skelhon hits perfect score
STILTON sharpshooter Matt Skelhon has been in perfect form again.
Competing in the IPC World Cup in France, Skelhon helped the GB team to victory with another deadly display of rifle shooting.
The Paralympic champion got the team off to a winning start, taking top spot in the R3 10m air rifle prone SH1 mixed competition with another perfect score of 600. He also hit 600 in the German World Cup a week beforehand. A 600 maximum is equivalent to the world record and is made up of 59 inner 10s.
Jason Maroney of Australia took silver and Vasyl Kovalchuk of the Ukraine the bronze.
GB also took the team gold in the same event through Skelhon, Deana Coates and Nathan Milgate and overall returned with three golds, four silvers and two bronze medals.
