Golden birthday celebrations for Laetisha Scanlan

Golden birthday celebrations for Laetisha Scanlan

Birthday presents don't get much better than a gold medal, and Laetisha Scanlan ensured hers was a 28th birthday to remember when she won the women's trap title.

As icing on the birthday cake, she also secured a Commonwealth Games record of 38.

“I said to myself today: ‘I’m not going to worry about the result. Win lose or draw, I’m going to celebrate for my birthday’, but boy, am I going to celebrate tonight,” Scanlan said after the win.

Birthday gold medals are the sweetest

Scanlan thanked her dad, her “number one supporter”, who inspired her to get involved with the sport. 

Northern Ireland’s Kirsty Barr took the women’s trap silver, her first Games medal after three Commonwealth Games appearances. 

Another shooter reached a milestone today, with India’s Amish, just 15, becoming the nation's youngest ever Commonwealth Games champion.
