Issy Bailey finished a creditable 14th on her Paralympic debut in P2 (10m Air Pistol Women SH1). Stewart Nangle made the final in P1 (10m Air Pistol Men SH1), finishing 6th.
Bailey, the youngest competitor in the field by six years, scored 359 from her 40 shots. Her PB of 375 would have been enough to qualify for the final but with many more Games ahead of her she will doubtless use the experience to come back stronger. The Gold medal was won by indisputably the finest female Paralympic pistol shooter Sareh Javadmardidodmani of Iran.
Nangle will be disappointed not to build on his 4th place in qualification but reaching the final in a field of 49 competitors was a fine achievement in itself. China's Chao Yang took the Gold. Nangle will have further chances to impress in P3 and P4.
