Catherine Skinner has won gold in her Olympic debut in women's trap shooting, Australia's third gold medal of the Games.
In the gold medal shoot-off, Skinner shot 12/15 targets, just one more than her opponent and good friend Natalie Rooney of New Zealand.
Skinner missed her first and fourth targets of the final to drop two behind Rooney. But then Rooney missed a pair of targets in a row, and then her 11th and 12th targets to let Skinner in. She needed to stay ahead with those last three targets, and keeping her cool, she knocked them down again and again.
It was the first time two Australians had competed together in an Olympic trap final, with Laetisha Scanlan qualifying first with a score of 70 from 75. But she missed five shots in the 15-target final to drop from contention for a medal.
