Red (18), who has only been shooting for three years, achieved the only maximum mark of 50/50 on one of the most difficult of sections in the entire competition.

Commentator Martin Caltin, of Pellet on Pellet – Everything Field Target, said: “There’s no doubt in my mind that the Black Course was the hardest, it absolutely killed me, but Red managed to clear it – I’ve no idea how you do that but that has to be the clear of 2017.”
