Commonwealth Games: Top 3 medals to UK 50m Rifle Prone – they were all shooting stars💫

Wales’ David Phelps won 50m rifle prone gold with a Commonwealth Games record, as Scot Neil Stirton and England’s Kenneth Parr completed the medals.

Phelps, the 2006 champion, triumphed with a total score of 248.8 to defeat Stirton in the final elimination round.

England’s Parr matched his Glasgow 2014 bronze.

David Luckman and Parag Patel earlier won Queen’s Prize gold for England, as Wales and Scotland completed another home nations clean sweep.

“It is truly awesome and epic,” Phelps told BBC Sport Wales after winning gold on his 41st birthday.

“It is a very pleasant surprise. I knew I had it in me to get to the final, but I managed to hold my nerve and just rely on 20 or 30 years of experience.

“Having the crowd sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me afterwards was very special.

“My friends and family came halfway around the world to see me.”

Isn’t it great to have the three shooters winning top medals. What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below
