Pete Wilson wins shooting gold

Congrats to Dorset's Peter Wilson for holding his nerve in a fantastic final and winning the gold medal. I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the Artillary Barracks last Sunday and got an idea of how tough shooting in front of so many spectators must be. Glad to see Princess Anne supporting shooting too!
