Northern Ireland’s David Calvert finished fourth in Tuesday’s full bore shooting competition at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The 63-year-old, who has won eight medals in 10 Games appearances, narrowly missed out on another medal.

Calvert was just one point outside the medal places while fellow NI shooter Jack Alexander was fifth.

“The conditions were challenging today in Barry Buddon but I’m happy with fourth and that Jack Alexander was fifth. It obviously isn’t a medal but it was a pleasing performance and it is my third time getting a fourth place position in the Commonwealth Games,” said Calvert.
