Did they show it on TV?

Is is available on the website? NO. They put the failures on there but not all the successes.

The womens started at 06:30 BST and mens at 07:30, and digging back, his medal was confirmed at around 8:07. Did you post immediately?


The frustrating thing about te BBC coverage is you cannot find out what they are going to show.

I posted in this thread when I noticed and read this thread. Not knowing that this thread existed, I didn't rush from watching the TV to post in it.

I was hoping people would want to join me in celebrating a British shooting success. Oh well, never mind.

Quarters - thanks for posting it. Nice to see us do well in the shooting, and I hadn't heard about it until I saw your post.
