Peter Wilson has won Britain's fourth gold medal of the London Olympics after victory in the double trap competition today. The 25-year-old from Dorset finished two shots clear of Sweden's Hakan Dahlby. A shoot-off will decide third. Wilson had finished the qualifying stage three shots clear and held off Dahlby's challenge to seal gold.
Everyone at MacWet is delighted for Team GB's success in shooting, which should see the sport gain some of the spotlight and recognition it deserves. Suitable for all shooting disciplines, MacWet's advanced gloves really are ideal for shooting thanks to their 'all grip and no slip' technology.
The first of their kind on the shooting glove market, MacWet gloves are made from a uniquely responsive fabric which automatically adjusts to the climate to maintain maximum comfort, sensitivity and feel at all times. With an unrivalled grip, the high quality, high performance gloves have a superb fit for maximum control across all weather conditions.
The medal is Britain's first Olympic shooting medal since Richard Faulds triumphed in Sydney 12 years ago.
Wilson came into the event at the Royal Artillery Barracks as world record holder and world number two and was the youngest man in the final.
