Lorraine Lambert won a Silver medal behind multiple Paralympic Gold medallist Veronika Vadivicova at the World Shooting Para Sport World Cup in the UAE.
Lambert shot an international PB of 575 to qualify for the R8 (50m Rifle 50m Three Positions Women SH1) final tied at the top with Vadivicova. The Slovak came out on top in the final but Paralympic finalist Lambert will be heartened that the gap has closed since Rio. Mandy Pankhurst qualified fifth and finished fourth in the final.
Lambert also made the final of the R3 (10m Air Rifle Prone Mixed SH1) competition, breaking the 630 mark for the first time ever at a World Cup. Her 630.6 was good enough to qualify in sixth and she finished fifth in the final, with Vadivicova again taking Gold.
Stewart Nangle made the final in both P1 (10m Air Pistol Men SH1) and P3 (25m Pistol Mixed SH1). He qualified top in P1 with a 562 but was eliminated in the final in 4th position. In P3 Nangle qualified sixth and maintained that position in the final. He will shoot again in P4 (50m Pistol Mixed SH1) on the 26th February.
Ryan Cockbill is the other GB shooter out in the UAE and will be shooting both SH2 10m events.
