Shooting for Gold

Edinburgh College graduate Jennifer McIntosh has won gold in 50m rifle prone at the European Shooting Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Jennifer, a former HND Make-up Artistry student, accumulated a score of 619.1 in Monday’s final to claim gold, with Ukraine’s Dariya Sharipova taking silver and Sweden’s Marie Enqvist bronze.

Her gold medal success comes nearly a year after she represented team GB at the Rio Olympics.

She is also Scotland’s most decorated female Commonwealth games athlete with silver and bronze medals at her third Commonwealth Games at Glasgow 2014, taking her overall total to five in the competition.

A massive well done from everyone at Edinburgh College!
