   Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 

Please continue down the page for shooting results, photos, press releases and more information.

To All the Shooting Athletes

 

What fantastic results – 9 Medals, 4 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze.

 

Delhi is our 11th Commonwealth Games for shooting and never before has Scotland (shooting) won so many medals!

 

Well done to all of you competing athletes, this is the most amazing result that Scottish Shooting has had since we started competing in the Commonwealth Games.

 

It is right that we make a big deal when our athletes win. It is because they represent everything that is good and positive about encouragement, self-belief, participation and most of all about our sport.

 

Our athletes have won, because they have tested themselves and proved they can do it. They have raised their game, in doing so, raised the expectations, and earned the admiration and respect of all of us.

 

This is a proud moment for the Scottish Target Shooting Federation. It is an even prouder moment for each of the athletes concerned. We celebrate too their Coaches, Team mates, Team Manager, family and friends who have supported and encouraged the athletes.

 

Congratulations to Jen McIntosh for not only winning her medals but making a new Games Record, Jonathan Hammond, Neil Stirton, Angus McLeod, Ian Shaw, Shona Marshall and Kay Copland, well done all.

 

Your success stories and photos are in the national tabloid papers and I believe that is a first, also quite some coverage being shown on the BBC Sport website on iPlayer which is also very positive.

 

We are really delighted for the medal winners and very proud of all the competitors. Some really good results for most of you and quite a few very close calls, despite not winning a medal!

Enjoy the rest of your visit.

Shooting delivers nine medals and top athlete in Delhi

Team Scotland’s shooters have put in a fantastic performance in Delhi, contributing a total of nine medals (four gold, three silver, two bronze) to the team total of 26. In Jonathan Hammond, shooting also lay claim to the most successful athlete in any sport, at a single Games (two gold, silver, bronze).

 

“I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t something I’d thought about before”, said Jon. “I had a belief that there would be medal opportunities in every event I had, and we prepared for it. Just little things throughout the year like shooting two big matches back to back. It was all in the planning so it’s hugely satisfying when it all works out in your favour.”

 

Hammond will carry the flag for Scotland at today’s closing ceremony; an honour fitting for his fantastic performance, both as an individual and as a pair with Neil Stirton. Jon will also be joined by shooting colleagues Jen McIntosh and team leader Joan Watt, along with swimmer, David Carry who are also being recognised for their achievements and contribution to Team Scotland.

 

Jen and David have both put in fantastic performances at the 2010 Games, while Joan has been a devoted member of Team Scotland for many years. Starting as a physio in Edinburgh in 1970, Joan has also worked as a physio for athletics and shooting. She is the team leader for shooting in Delhi, and has played a major part in their success.

 

Jon narrowly pipped fellow shooter Jen McIntosh, who herself claimed an impressive three medals (two gold, one bronze). Jen also reached some personal targets; particularly winning gold in the 50m prone singles event, which was won by her mother Shirley at the 1994 Games in Victoria. With a world record, equalling performance of 597-42x, Jen also set a new Commonwealth Games record.

 

Jen is open about the inspiration and encouragement she has received over the years from both her mother and her father Donald. “A big inspiration for me was my mother, and I just want to thank my family and my friends for their support”, she said.

                                                                                                          

Jon also spoke about the successes of the team as a whole: “It’s been an incredible Games for shooting. Once we got a few medals it was good for morale, he said. “On the rifle side to pick up so many medals, particularly in the 3P was huge. We’ve always been strong in prone and we knew we’d have medal opportunities so that put us in a good frame of mind and maybe lifted a bit of pressure early on. To get four golds out of four in the prone events is just fantastic.

 

“Shona Marshall in the shotgun event has a medal, and the full-bore guys picked up a medal, so it’s great that we’re contributing as a team. I just wanted to do my best and try to pick up a medal in every one.”

 

The small-bore rifle team contributed seven medals in total (four gold, one silver, two bronze), which coach Donald McIntosh describes as being “beyond my wildest dreams”.

 

“Picking up three 3P medals was ahead of my internal target, and we almost had four”, said Donald. “I’m delighted for Shona Marshall, who has grafted so hard over the past few years, pretty much on her own. And the full-bore guys today had a great result.

 

“We’ve had a lot of support; financial and otherwise from the institute network over the past few years. We’ve had much more financial support over the past few years that we’ve ever had before from sportscotland and it’s delivered.”

 

Shooting Team Leader Joan Watt, is delighted with the performance of the shooting team out in Delhi and hopes that it will be the cornerstone for further development of the sport in Scotland. “I’m very proud of the whole team”, said Joan. “They’ve all worked so hard, and it’s fantastic to see them getting the praise that they really deserve. It is very good for shooting, and I hope that it will influence the future in terms of facilities and funding.”

 

It’s a sentiment shared by Donald McIntosh: “I think we can do more. We’ve got some challenges with the programme change coming up. We’re dealing with people being spread across the world. We struggle to train in the winter because we don’t have the facilities. If we can change that then we can do better”!

 

·         Scotland’s shooters won nine medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games:

o    Gold – 50m prone singles – Jen McIntosh

o    Gold – 50m prone singles – Jon Hammond

·         Scotland’s best performing athlete was Jonathan Hammond (small-bore rifle) with 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze.

·         Jon Hammond is Scotland’s best performing athlete in any sport at a single Games.    

Team Scotland reflects on a successful Commonwealth Games

 

With a total of 26 medals (9 gold, 10 silver, 7 bronze) Team Scotland has celebrated a fantastic 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Only in Melbourne 2006, has Team Scotland won more gold medals (11).

 

Commonwealth Games Scotland Chairman, Michael Cavanagh said: “When we arrived three and a half weeks ago we knew there were challenges ahead and I’m delighted about how the team has responded to those challenges, resulting in an excellent team performance.”

 

The sentiment was echoed by Team Scotland Chef de Mission Jon Doig, saying: “I have an immense sense of pride at what our athletes and support staff have achieved here over the last four weeks. I am delighted with the overall team performance and it exceeds our medal target prediction of 18-25.”

 

It is particularly encouraging to see the successes of younger athletes with 19 of Scotland’s 28 individual medallists competing in their first Commonwealth Games. “I said at the time of the team announcement that Delhi would give an opportunity for new heroes to emerge” said Jon. “We’ve certainly seen that to be the case during the past ten days of competition.” 

 

It really has been a team effort in Delhi, and athletes have been quick to acknowledge the role played by the team management and support staff. Shooter Jonathan Hammond said: “I have to give a huge thank you to Michael and Jon for all their hard work, and also to the whole support staff. There have been so many people involved to make this happen and make it work.”

 

Fellow shooter, Jen McIntosh added: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone, the support has been fantastic. I owe all my performances to them, particularly the physios we have been working with.”

 

With four medals (2 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze), Jon Hammond is Scotland’s most successful athlete in any sport at a single Games. Following this fantastic achievement, Jon will carry the saltire for Scotland during this evening’s closing ceremony. Jon will be joined by Jen McIntosh, swimmer David Carry, and shooting team leader, Joan Watt, along with swimmer, David Carry who are also being recognised for their achievements and contribution to Team Scotland.

.

Jen and David have both performed exceptionally at the 2010 Games, while Joan has been a devoted member of Team Scotland since 1970, as a volunteer, physio and team leader. Jon Doig said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce that our flagbearer will be Jon Hammond. I’m also very proud to be able to offer the opportunity to Joan, who has accepted.” The final place in the party is normally reserved for the Chef de Mission, but Jon has offered it to Joan, to celebrate her devotion to Team Scotland.

 

Team Scotland is famous for its morale and camaraderie amongst athletes, officials and supporters, with Delhi once again proving that we truly are 17 sports, one team. During competition, athletes have been supported by fellow athletes, support staff and partners. David Carry said: It’s really indicative of how we all get involved and there really is a genuine team atmosphere that I’ve noticed at this competition more than any other.”

 

David has also been involved in wider Team Scotland operations, particularly with the Achieve 2014 programme, which has given young prospective athletes for Glasgow 2014, with an experience of a major Games environment.

 

“I got to show the Achieve 2014 kids around the village, and really get involved with their visit. I passed on some of the mistakes I’ve made in the past and some of my lessons”, said David. “I think it’s one of the most impressive programmes that Team Scotland has put in place. To be able to get that experience and information is just amazing for those guys.” 

Once again, the support for Team Scotland from commercial and public sector partners has been fantastic.  

Michael Cavanagh said: “I would also like to pay tribute to both our commercial and public sector partners, in Clydesdale Bank, Emirates Airline and sportscotland. Without their full support we wouldn’t have even got across the start line. I’m delighted that the Leadership Trust put each of our team staff through their leadership programme, which has paid dividends over the last three weeks in the challenges we have faced.”

At the closing ceremony this evening, the Commonwealth Games will officially be handed over to Glasgow who will host the 2014 Games, marking the start of one of the most exciting four years periods ever for Scottish sport.

 

Jon Doig said: “We are starting to build our plans as we go into one of the most exciting periods in our history, being the host CGA for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014. We’ve always been an athlete focused team and Glasgow will be an athlete focused Games.”

 

Despite Delhi only just coming to a close, Jen McIntosh also has her sights firmly set on Glasgow: “The experiences I’ve had out here have been absolutely phenomenal and I’m really looking forward to Glasgow”, she said. “To have the next Games on home ground; I can’t even imagine what that will be like!”

Scotland’s Shooters on the mark again with Gold and Silver

It was another fantastic day for Team Scotland’s shooters at both ranges as the team collected another gold and silver medal to add to their collection. Jon Hammond picked up where he left off yesterday to collect gold in the 50m prone event, while full bore shooters Angus McLeod and Ian Shaw won silver in the pairs competition.

 

Jon shot well yesterday and put in another strong performance today, only dropping five shots to score of 595-43x. There was a tricky wind at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range today, but Jon dealt with it well to beat off Australia’s Warren Potent into second place.

 

After collecting his fourth medal of the Games, Jon said: “It was just a great day. Yesterday was fantastic, winning the pairs with Neil. Today I just wanted to have a good match and see what happened. I would have been pretty delighted just to have got a medal and come away with a medal in each event. To win it and to beat Warren in the final, who one of the best shooters in the world; is really satisfying.”

 

Donald McIntosh, small bore coach for Team Scotland was delighted with Jon’s performance, and the successes of the shooting team as a whole. “It was a fantastic performance from Jon today”, said Donald. “He had a great qualifying round in tricky wind, next to Warren Potent, who has been in the top two or three in the world for the last five years. He put in a great performance and increased his lead in the final, in what was a world class performance from Jonathan today.”

 

“We’ve had a lot of support; financial and otherwise from the institute network over the past few years. We’ve had much more financial support over the past few years that we’ve ever had before from sportscotland and it has delivered.”

 

Jon’s pairs partner Neil Stirton also shot well today, and narrowly missed out on a medal, coming fifth in the final with a score of 592-31x.

 

On the full-bore range at the CRPF Campus, Kadarpur Angus McLeod and Ian Shaw completed the pairs competition, to come second with a score of 587-46v. There have been technical equipment challenges at the full bore range throughout the competition, but the Scots battled well to take silver, just one point behind New Zealand. It’s the first medal for Team Scotland in the full-bore competition since 1982 in Brisbane.

 

The two shooters were delighted with the result, with Ian saying: Ian “I’m relieved to have won the silver. We just missed out last time round, when we finished fourth so it’s great to get a medal here. We missed out on first by a point and a couple of v scores.”

 

It’s been a long week of competition for the full bore shooters in the Delhi sun, but Angus says the preparation has paid off: “It’s been four years of training to get to this point”, he said. “The heat hasn’t actually affected either of us too much; in fact we’ve become quite accustomed to it. What it has affected; is at long range the visibility has been poor. Sometimes it was almost impossible.”

 

Drew Christie and Ian Marsden shot in the final stage of the skeet singles competition where they finished fourth (143) and ninth (116) respectively. Caroline Brownlie also competed in the 10m air pistol event, finishing 12th in the qualification round on 367-5x.

 

Action at both ranges concluded today, with nine of Team Scotland’s medals, including four gold, being awarded to shooters, making them the top performing sport at the 2010 Games.

 

Shooting team leader Joan Watt said: “I’m very proud of the whole team. They’ve all worked so hard, and it’s fantastic to see them getting the rewards that they really deserve.”

Scotland’s sharp shooters take double Gold

Jen McIntosh, Neil Stirton and Jonathan Hammond took gold for Scotland in another enthralling day of action at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range. Fresh from winning gold in the 50m prone pairs competition yesterday; Jen took the singles competition with another fantastic performance. Not to be outdone by the girls, Neil and Jon also picked up gold in the 50m prone pairs competition.

 

Jen was first on the range this morning, where she put in an exemplary performance to take the gold. Only dropping three points during the entire match, Jen equalled the world record, and set a new Commonwealth Games record of 597-42x. Beating Carolyn Quigley's Games record of 590, set in 1998. Following her shoot, Jen couldn’t contain her excitement at claiming her second gold of the Games: “It went more than according to plan today. I’m absolutely stunned. I don’t think I have the words for it; it’s just incredible.”

 

“I wasn’t really aware of where I was in the medal standings but I knew how well it was going. I finished in around 30 minutes, and at that point only two girls were capable of matching me. After about five minutes they had dropped enough, and I got to relax!”

 

This medal has a particular significance to Jen, whose mother Shirley won the event at the 1994 Games in Victoria. Jen spoke to her mum shortly after finishing: “my mum called to say how proud she was of me”, she said.

 

With two gold medals around her neck in her first Games, Jen says she couldn’t really pick her favourite: “I don’t really know how to differentiate between the two. Yesterday was great because I got to share the moment with Kay in the pairs, which is something that you don’t get to do all that often in shooting. This one is really special though.”

 

Neil Stirton and Jonathan Hammond picked up bronze last week in the 50m 3P pairs event, and were once again on the podium in the 50m prone pairs. With a combined score of 1181-74x the Scots took gold, three points ahead of England. This was a sweet revenge for Neil and Jon, having lost out on silver to England by a single inner ten score in the 3P competition.

 

Jon now has a full set of medals from the 2010 Games, which is a fantastic achievement. “It was a tricky day today with the wind, and all the scores were a bit lower than we were expecting”, said Jon. “We had to fight through it and I’m glad we came out on top. It’s great to have gone up one step at a time. To collect a full set of medals at my first Commonwealth Games is really special and it’s something I’ll cherish forever.”

 

Jon and Neil will compete again tomorrow in the 50m prone singles competition, where they’ll be looking to hear ‘Flower of Scotland’, played one last time at the small-bore range. 

Sebastion Coe inspires Team Scotland and Glasgow 2014

Sebastian Coe was a visitor to Scotland House in New Delhi on Tuesday, urging Team Scotland’s medallists “to encourage thousands of kids to take up sport,” and telling athletes from the Achieve 2014 initiative that their experience in Delhi can act “as a stepping stone to a medal in Glasgow 2014.”

 

Lord Coe, chair of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (LOCOG), also highlighted the close links between Glasgow 2014 and London 2012, which he joked would be “a test event for 2014.” 

 

And the double Olympic gold medallist reminded all those involved in Glasgow 2014 that, following Thursday’s closing ceremony, “you’re the next taxi off the rank” - an experience with which he is familiar, with London having taken over as next Olympic host city after Beijing in 2008. 

 

“With the handing over of the flag,” Lord Coe told the Glasgow 2014 organisers, “you’ll notice that your preparations, your pace, and the scrutiny and interest around the [Commonwealth] Games, will quicken. 

 

“I’m delighted that our organisations work as closely as they do,” he continued, “and we’ve done so from the very beginning. I remember standing in our own headquarters in Canary Wharf on the day [Glasgow] won the right to stage the Games. I remember all our teams standing twenty-deep around televisions, and there was genuine excitement.

 

“It’s really important that these organisations work together. We have a complementary interest here, and that is legacy. It’s really important to go on driving young people into sport. Every medal is and should be used to drive thousands more kids into sport.”

 

Addressing Team Scotland’s medallists, including swimming gold medallist Hannah Miley, Lord Coe added: “It’s not just about being here with a medal; there’s now some responsibility to get back into your communities and inspire people. It’s a virtuous circle.”

 

In addition to the medallists, young athletes from the Achieve 2014 programme were in attendance. Thirty athletes, in three groups, have travelled to Delhi to experience the athletes’ village and venues, to give them a taste of a multi-sports games.

 

“I’m delighted you’ve got the Achieve 2014 programme up and running,” said Lord Coe. “I know myself, from my own experiences, that the ability to absorb the atmosphere of a multi-sports event is really as important a part of that competition process as being out there on the track. 

 

“It’s not the same as going off to an individual event, no matter how important that event is,” he added. “This is a really big learning process. This could just make the difference between appearing in 2014 and getting a medal in 2014, and I would urge you to really use this as a stepping stone.”

 

John Scott, chief executive of Glasgow 2014, said that Lord Coe’s visit to Scotland House was “an example of the co-operation [between London 2012 and Glasgow 2014] in practice.”

 

Turning to the athletes, Scott reiterated that the Glasgow Games would be “about you guys - it’s all about the sport. Seb has made that very clear as chair of 2012, and we share that ambition.”

 

Thursday’s closing ceremony will, said Scott, represent “our big occasion, because that’s when we pick up the flag and move forward towards the next Commonwealth Games. We want our athletes to focus on our handover piece, when we will invite the Commonwealth, and indeed the world, to come to Glasgow and enjoy what we aspire to deliver, which is an outstanding Games.”

 

Though the handover piece remains shrouded in secrecy until Thursday evening, Scott promised that Glasgow’s contribution to the closing ceremony would be “an interesting, classic, fantastic piece of creativity from Scotland.”

Prone to Success – Jen McIntosh and Kay Copland take Shooting Gold

Jennifer McIntosh and Kay Copland took gold in the 50m prone pairs event at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range, adding to the bronze won in the 50m 3P pair’s competition. The Scottish pair pipped England into second place with a score of 1169-60x.

 

Jen and Kay missed out on silver by a single point last week, and once again their medal colour was determined on the last shot. Jen was one of the first shooters to finish on the range, leaving her the agonising task of watching her partner complete.

 

Going into the final shot, a ten would draw them level on points with England, but would be enough to give them gold due to their higher inner tens score (60 to 52). Kay said: “It came down to the last few shots between us and England, and if I’d dropped any of my shots then we’d have come in second but thankfully I kept them all in the ten ring.”

“It was nail-biting again for me watching Kay”, said Jen. “I was just thinking oh my god! The result is absolutely fantastic. I can’t really find the right words to describe it. I’m just over the moon.”

 

Jen’s father and coach, Donald McIntosh spoke of his pride at the pair’s achievement. “I’m thrilled to bits with the two of them. Jen shot really well. It was a really controlled performance and I’m really happy with that. Kay had a bit of a tough time with the wind, which was a bit of a surprise because she’s a very experienced and very tough wind shooter. One thing about these Commonwealth Games pairs is that you don’t know what anyone else is doing, and every point matters. She dug in and finished with three tens, which was what she needed to take gold”.

 

Kay and Jen shoot in their final event tomorrow (12 October) in the singles prone competition, where they will both be vying for another gold. Gold tomorrow would be especially sweet for Jen, whose mother Shirley won the first event at the 1994 Victoria Games.I’m trying not to think about that too much”, said Jen. “I really want to win it, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.”

Despite collecting two medals so far at the 2010 Games, both girls insist they’ll try to forget about them both during tomorrow’s final match. “For me it’s a totally different match”, said Kay. “I go into every match thinking I can do this and I see every day as a new day.” Jen admitted she could struggle to put the past week behind her but says she needs to if she wants another medal: “I’ll have to try and blank it out of my mind, and try to calm down and focus for tomorrow.”

Donald is hungry for more medals and is busy preparing the pair for tomorrow: “They need to go and get their heads together. Jen is coming off the back of a great score and Kay is coming off the back of what was a relatively poor score for her, so there’s conflicting emotions. Our job is to get them rested, and get their heads in the right place for them to have a crack at it tomorrow.”

Team Scotland’s shooters have now collected medals in five events at the 2010 Games, with two days left of competition.

7th October
Graham Rudd competed in the 10m Air Rifle qualification round but missed out on a place in the afternoon shoot-off, finishing 11th. Pistol shooters Alan Ritchie and Caroline Brownlie also missed out on final spots after finishing 19th in the 50m and 14th in the 25m precision qualification rounds respectively.

Pairs bronze medallists Jennifer McIntosh and Kay Copland will face one another in the 50m 3P singles event from 0900hrs local time. 

McIntosh and Copland score Bronze for Scotland (5th October)

Jennifer McIntosh and Kay Copland picked up Scotland’s second bronze medal of the 2010 Games, in a tense session at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range. The pair competed together in the 50m three position women’s pairs event in humid Delhi conditions, finishing third behind Singapore and India.  

 

The results came down to the final shot of the competition with Kay; the sole remaining shooter on the range, needing a ten to secure silver for Scotland. A ten would have moved the pair level with India on points, but would have been enough to take them ahead due to their higher inner ten score, however she scored a nine and they had to settle for bronze.

 

After picking up her first Commonwealth Games medal Jen, 19 said: “I’m obviously delighted to have won a medal, though it’s a bit disappointing to come away with bronze rather than silver or gold. It’s tough, particularly when it came down to that last point.”

 

Kay added: "I'm really happy with the result. I had no idea it was so close, but it's a great feeling to come away with a medal."

 

McIntosh was one of the first shooters to complete all three positions, leaving her with the unenviable task of watching her partner finish. It was a tense half hour with the medal places changing after almost every shot.

 

It was absolutely terrifying watching Kay shoot that last sequence”, said Jen. “It’s always the worst part for me”. Despite being alone in action, Kay was aware that there could be a lot riding on her last few points: “It was running through my head that there could be just a few points between gold; silver, bronze and fourth, but I was trying not to think about it too much. The thought of it maybe just got a bit too much today for my last shot.”

 

Shooting is predominantly an individual sport, so the opportunity to compete alongside compatriots is a rarity. The girls will face one another in the both the 50m prone and 3 position singles events, but say that their rivalry is confined to the range.

 

“Me and Jen are good friends”, says Copland. “We make sure that what happens on the range stays on the range. The minute we walk off it all goes back to normal and there’s no competition between us.”

 

Jen’s dad and coach, Donald McIntosh was proud of the pair’s performance, saying: “It was a pretty tough day and the scores are actually pretty low. The girls fought well through the wind and came away with a medal which is great. There was the pressure of the occasion to deal with as well and a level of expectation about medals. There was plenty of adrenaline flowing between the two of them today.”

 

Both Jen and Kay will be back in action on Thursday in the 50m 3P singles event.

Congratulating all members of Team Scotland, Michael Cavanagh, Chairman, CGS, said: “Our selection process has been rigorous and robust throughout, and although the standards set have been tough, our athlete’s have clearly risen to the challenge as shown by the increase in the numbers achieving them since the last Games. I would like to thank the participating governing bodies of sport, which have worked closely with us to ensure that the process has been successfully and fairly implemented”

“However making the team is just the first step on the journey now will come the real test for the athletes of performing to their potential in Delhi. With just 46 days to go until the start of the Games I wish everyone all the very best with their final preparations and I look forward to watching them in action in October.”

 

Also at the announcement to extend her good wishes to the team, was Minister for Public Health and Sport Shona Robison who said: “I wish all the athletes selected to represent Team Scotland at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi the very best of luck.  All of these athletes have reached this point through sheer hard work, dedication and commitment and are an inspiration to us all”

“The 2010 Games is a perfect platform for our athletes to demonstrate their talent and ability on the international sporting stage.  The Games will also provide experience for those who have aspirations to compete for Scotland in front of a home crowd when Glasgow hosts the Games in 2014.  I am looking forward to going to Delhi to support the team and I’m sure I will witness some outstanding performances.”

 

The athletes will be supported by a staff of 91, comprising team management, coaches, medical and sports science support, including doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists, physiologists and performance analysts many of whom work with athletes on a day to bay basis through the sportscotland institute of sport network.

 

Louise Martin CBE, Chair of sportscotland said: “On behalf of sportscotland I would like to congratulate each of the athletes selected to represent Team Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. sportscotland is committed to the continual development of high performance sport in Scotland through our investment in governing bodies of sport and Commonwealth Games Scotland as the lead body for Commonwealth sport in Scotland. We also provide support and expertise to sport and athletes through the sportscotland institute of sport network.

The Commonwealth Games holds particular significance for Scotland, being the only major Games, where we compete as a nation in our own right. This is even more important as we prepare to host the Games, in Glasgow 2014. There have been some fantastic performances by Scottish athletes in the run up to Delhi, and I am sure that they will do us all proud come the Games in October.”


Extending their best wishes to the team, Steve Reid, Retail Director, Clydesdale Bank said: “Representing Team Scotland, wearing the team colours and competing under the Saltire flag is I'm sure one of the proudest moments of each of your careers. On behalf of Team Scotland partners, Clydesdale Bank I want to wish you every success in the challenges that lie in wait for you during the 19th Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Good luck and best wishes from everyone at the Clydesdale Bank.”

 

The first team departure for the Games will be on 23 September from Glasgow Airport flying with Emirates Airlines, one of the team’s main sponsors.

Team Manager - Commonwealth Games 2010

Scottish Target Shooting, in conjunction with Commonwealth Games Scotland, are delighted to have appointed Joan Watt as Sport Team Manager for Shooting at the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. 

 

Joan fulfilled the same role at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and brings a wealth of experience with her.

 

A chartered Physiotherapist Joan has contributed to Scottish Commonwealth Games teams in her role as physiotherapist at each Games since 1982, was Senior Physiotherapist in 1994 and Joint Head Physiotherapist in 1998. 

Joan has also served as lead physiotherapist at Olympic Games, World and European Championships for Athletics and Shooting amongst other sports and was instrumental in establishing the British Sports Massage Association.  

Joan is a former Chairperson of Scottish Athletics and has servied as honorary medical advisor on the board of Commonwealth Games Scotland since 2003 and is also part of the STSF council.

 

Commonwealth Games Programme Changes

 

At the Commonwealth Games Federation Assembly (Nov 2007) in Sri Lanka a number of changes to the Commonwealth Games programme have been agreed:

With immediate effect, Women's Skeet and Women's Double Trap have been removed from the programme.

This change is as a direct consequence of low participation levels at the 2002 and 2006 Games in these events. 

Women's Skeet remains an Olympic event, and Scottish Target Shooting will continue to support athletes in this event who are pursuing Great Britain team selection.

From effect from 2014, with the exception of Fullbore Rifle, all of the Pairs events, and the non-Olympic individual events, are to be removed from the programme.  

The non-Olympic events are Women's 50m Prone Rifle - an event in which Scotland has won three Gold, two Silver and two Bronze medals since 1994 - Men's 25m Standard Pistol and Men's 25m Centre Fire Pistol.  

All three of these events have attracted considerably higher numbers of participants than a number of the Olympic events which are retained, and the Women's Prone decision in particular will mean that for the first time ever, Women will be unable to compete in the Prone event at the Commonwealth Games.

 

Scottish Target Shooting is fully committed to working with our partners and colleagues across the Commonwealth to appeal these decisions
