World 300 Metre Team Champions: (L to R) Tony Lincoln, Simon Aldhouse and Harry Creevy

Isle of Man shooting is riding high today thanks to outstanding performances from two of its shining stars at the 50th World Shooting Championships in Munich.  Harry Creevy and Tim Kneale are the stars in question and Thursday, 5th August 2010 is the date on which the Manxmen won two World Championship medals.  Simply stunning!

In the 300 Metre Prone Rifle Team event, the British 3-some of Harry Creevy, Tony Lincoln and Simon Aldhouse inched ahead for Gold with 1792 ex 1800 in a tight finish against Austria who took the Silver medal on 1791 and France a further point behind on 1790 for Bronze.  Harry was in the second of two relays, knowing his team mates had both performed stongly in Relay 1 and that medals were on offer if he put in a similar top-drawer performance...  which he did.  His score strings went 100, 100, 100, 98, 99, 100 for a brilliant 597.  Lincoln was top Brit on 599 and Aldhouse a point behind Creevy with 596.

Tim Kneale was the top scoring member of the British 3-man Double Trap team which won the Team Bronze medal, two points behind the Russian Federation in Silver and the USA taking the Gold with a new World record of 433.  Tim shot 143, with Steve Scott on 142 and Peter Wilson on 140, for a total team score of 425 ex 450.  Tim is a former World Junior bronze medallist and this storming performance comes just a few weeks after his world record equalling 147 in Lonato in Italy.
