SHOOTING: French has Commonwealth Games in his sights
10:30am Thursday 12th June 2014 in Sport
Oakley's Matt French says he can’t wait for the Commonwealth Games after England’s clay target shooting team was confirmed for Glasgow 2014.
French, 32, is in a squad of 11, which brings the shooting team’s total up to 25.
He will be competing in the double trap.
“I am over the moon to be representing England at the Games,” said French.
“This is the high point in my shooting career so far and a dream come true.
“If I never fire another shot after the Games I can retire a happy man knowing I have achieved something very special.
“My minimum aim is to make the top-six final, but realistically I won’t be happy if I don’t return with a medal.”
