Huckle's bronze came behind Indian stars Gagan Narang, with a Games record of 703.6 points, and Abhinav Bindra.

The English shooter went into the final one place out of the medals, having shot 591 in his six qualifying rounds, two points less than team-mate Kenny Parr.

But the 19-year-old from Harlow, who won two golds at the Commonwealth Youth Games in India two years ago, overhauled his pairs partner.

"I just tried to concentrate on my shooting," said Huckle. "I didn't think about the bronze until after my last shot, when I checked the final scoreboard."
