SHOOTING: Thame teen Charles Davidmann completed a brilliant season by winning the UK Championship title in Olympic Skeet Shotgun.

It added to the 18-year-old’s gold medal which he won at the Belgrade Grand Prix earlier in the year.

The competition is one of the longest running in the discipline and had the unusual format of shooting 200 targets.

Davidmann went into the competition aiming for a medal but he topped his expectations with a first place finish.

He hit a total score of 184/200, which was enough to win the senior competition as well, giving him the crown of UK Champion 2011.

Previous winners of the title include the 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and three Olympians.
