Shooting: European bronze for Pirouet

Pirouet's first outing on the international stage was a huge success as the 18-year-old took on the best U21 rifle shots in Europe to claim a place on the podium.

The Victoria College pupil's final score of 226.0 gave him a grand total of 617.0 which was bettered only by Hungary's Zalan Pekler, who set a new record with his 621.0, and Croatia's Borna Petanjek.
