Lakes Entrance Shooter Aislin Jones Claims Gold At Queensland Cup

Lakes Entrance shooter Aislin Jones has cemented her top spot in the selection event for the Australian team in Women’s Skeet, dominating a strong field in Brisbane over the weekend.

Taking the gold medal with a finals score of 55/60, 6 targets ahead of silver medalist Laura Coles, Jones showed that she was not to be taken lightly.

A strong field contested the women’s skeet event, including current world number one ranked sporting clays and 2018 women’s world champion Renae Birgan also from Victoria, Laura Coles from WA and Cherie Reeves from Queensland.

Three places on the team for the Oceania Regional Championships are up for grabs over the three event selection series, this as the second selection event was contested by shooters from around the country over two days.

The Oceania Regional Championship takes place in early November at the Sydney International Shooting Centre, which was the venue for the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

Sydney will prove a fitting location, as its the last event with Tokyo Olympic quota places for Australians, New Zealanders and other Oceania Region competitors.

After two selection series events Jones sits 14 points clear at the top of the points table for team selection for Women’s Skeet.

Aislin’s younger sister Renae competed in the Mixed Trap Teams on Friday with William Freni-Lizzi from WA, also in the individual Women’s Trap competition.

The East Gippsland Sports Foundation athlete performed strongly in the teams event, the pair had a shoot off with two other teams for a place in the Bronze Medal final, but with two finals berths and three teams contesting they tied on 134/150 and narrowly missed out.

In the Women’s Trap individual competition Renae put in a strong performance shooting 106 of the 125 targets, this secured her a place in the 6 person final where she finished in a very credible fifth position.

Both girls will compete in the third round of the Oceania Regional Championship selection series at Sydney in a fortnight, after which the teams for November will be announced.
