On Sunday, Amber Hill earned Great Britain a Tokyo Olympic Games quota place with victory in the women's skeet at the International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup in New Delhi, India.
Hill, who won silver at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, dominated qualification, shooting a world record of 124/125, but was taken into a shoot-off in the final by Kazakhstan's Zoya Kravchenko after both women scored 51 points.
But the world no.5 from Windsor demonstrated her class with four successful attempts to her opponent's three, to seal top spot and pave the way towards this summer's rescheduled Olympic Games.
Reflecting on her victory Hill said,
"I honestly didn't expect it to go as well as it did.
"To shoot 124 and equal the world record in qualifiers and then go on to win the gold medal has been amazing," she added.
"We've taken so many precautions with masks and endless sanitising but it's been so worth it. It really feels like all the hard work has paid off.
"I'd just like to say a massive thank you to all the support team at British Shooting for making this possible, despite how challenging it's been this year.
"Hopefully I've now secured my spot on the plane for Tokyo and this is just the start of the journey."
Hours after her win, she reflected on her Instagram;
"I am lost for words. I can’t believe it."
Freddie Killander and Jack Fairclough who both competed for Team England on the Gold Coast also competed in Delhi and Killander finished 4th in the final; his best ever performance in a World Cup. The team's success bodes well for next year's Commonwealth Archery and Shooting Commonwealth Championships where they will return to India.
