Lorraine Lambert won her first ever international medal in R6 (50m Rifle Prone Mixed SH1) in Hannover but World Champion Matt Skelhon missed the final after finishing 9th in qualification.
Lambert qualified for the final in 7th with a score of 614.5 but climbed the rankings in the final finishing ahead of Slovakia's Veronika Vadivicova in Bronze and only 0.5 behind Gold medalist Yan Yaping of China. Skelhon had a bad day at the office as his first twenty shots left him with a mountain to climb he improved as the match went on but 613.1 was not enough. Karen Butler finished 27th, Ben Jesson 30th, Owen Burke 35th, Mandy Pankhurst 45th and Lesley Baldwin 46th. The GB team of Skelhon, Butler and Jesson won Bronze.
Lambert did not make the final in R8 (50m Rifle 3 Positions Women SH1) but Pankhurst did in her first ever international shoot of the event. Pankhurst qualified in 8th with a score of 553 but Lambert in 9th (551) and Butler in 10th (546) missed out. Pankhurst also finished 8th in the final but it was a hugely promising debut in the event. The team took Silver behind China.
Owen Burke was the sole GB representative in R7 (50m Rifle 3 positions Men SH1) and kept up his fine record of making international finals by qualifying in 8th place with a score of 1128. He also finished in 8th in the final.
Finally on the first day of the competition James Bevis stormed to victory in the non-Paralympic event R9 (50m Rifle Prone Mixed SH2). He finished with 622.4 with his closest challenger Pamela Novaglio of Italy on 608.1.
