Amber Hill admits she exceeded her own expectations after overcoming a nosebleed to pick up a skeet-shooting bronze medal at the World Cup in Gabala, Azerbaijan.

Hill shot a perfect 16 in the bronze medal match, despite earlier suffering a nosebleed, to beat Poland's Aleksandra Jarmolinska.

Azerbaijan is fast becoming a happy hunting ground for the 17-year-old, who has admitted she is targeting a place at next year's Rio Olympics, after she won gold at the inaugural European Games in Baku earlier this year.

Katiuscia Spada of Italy took gold while America's Morgan Craft picked up silver and Hill acknowledges it is gratifying to see her hard graft pay off.

"To come away with bronze was more than I could have asked for," said Hill, who competed at Glasgow 2014.

"To win two medals in a matter of a couple of months is an amazing feeling and it really feels that my hard work has paid off.

"I've got a great support team around me which is helping me get to that point."
