Default Gold for GB in a shooting sport

Olympics shooting: GB's Peter Wilson wins double trap gold

Shooter Peter Wilson won Britain's fourth gold medal of the London Olympics with victory in the double trap competition.

The Dorset man finished two shots clear of Sweden's Hakan Dahlby. Russia's Vasily Mosin was third.

Wilson, 25, had finished the qualifying stage three shots clear and held off Dahlby's challenge to seal gold.

It is Britain's first Olympic shooting medal since Richard Faulds triumphed in the same event in Sydney 12 years ago.

Faulds failed to reach the six-man final at the Royal Artillery Barracks after finishing 12th in qualifying with a score of 133 in his fifth Olympics.

Wilson came into the event as world record holder and world number two and was the youngest man in the final.

World number one Josh Richmond and reigning Olympic champion Walton Eller, both of the United States, failed to make the final.
Congratulations to Peter Wilson! Anybody know him?
