Emily T performed exceptionally well at the British Shooting Target Sprint National Finals by winning a silver medal in the Junior Women's event.

Qualifiying in the second fastest time of 6min:17:0 in the heats (behind Old Girl Araminta S), Emily advanced to the final.

In a final of nine contestants, the lead changed several times in the first lap, and it was the first round of shooting that seperated the pack. Araminta, shooting a perfect 5/5 left the shooting area first and started the second lap with a substantial lead. Emily was not far behind, leaving the shoot in fourth position. Emily ran a very well paced second lap and passed a number of opposition, returning in second position. In the second and final shooting round, Araminta S produced another outstanding display of shooting and again lead the field into the final lap. Emily T shot well and started the final lap in third place. Araminta S was too far ahead to catch and the battle began for the 2nd & 3rd placings. Emily T steadily clawed back the gap between her and second place with each stride and with a well timed sprint finish Emily T claimed 2nd place in an outstanding time of 6min:00.0, beating 3rd place by 2 seconds.

Araminta S, Emily T's training partner from last term, won the event in 5min:35:5.

This is a fantastic result for Emily T (and Aramimta S). Well done girls.
