GB won both Gold medals available in the non-Paralympic events at the IPC Shooting World Cup USA but Matt Skelhon finished 4th in R3.

Roy Carter cemented his status as the World's leading athlete in the P5 event finishing with a score of 350, five points clear of three athletes tied on 345 beneath him. Carter will be looking to take the winning feeling into the P1 event, where he and Stewart Nangle will be targeting the two available direct slots for Rio.

James Bevis (pictured) won the R9 event by a huge margin, his score of 620.0 streets ahead of Austria's Johan Windhofer's 608.8. Bevis will compete in his primary event of R5 on Saturday. With GB having already won all three available Rio slots in the event Bevis, Ryan Cockbill, Tim Jeffery and Richard Davies will be all in the hunt for medals.

Matt Skelhon qualified for the R3 final in second place behind Slovakia's Veronika Vadivicova. Vadivicova went on to win the final while Skelhon, who was struggling with a new rifle, finished just outside the medals in 4th.
