    Just saw James shot 598 out of 600 Ten meter at Intershoot. He unfortunately came 2nd after a nerve biting final. Still 598 is a truly international performance...Olympics??????

    James is a truly dedicated sportsman, he deserves the results with the effort he puts in to training.

    Well done mate!!

    The following day James scored 596 in qualification, equalling the old record, but 102.8 in the final gave 698.8, raising Kenny’s previous record by 0.2 points. Altogether James competed in one team and three individual matches, and won two Silver and two Bronze medals, and broke two British records. Not bad for a weekend's plink :)

    There's only one place to grab for the UK team. It's all or nothing, as much as every one who's in the frame deserves it, i'd like to see Mr H in the summer poking a few down the range. It is after all the stuff of dreams.
