Steven Scott, who trains at Nuthampstead Shooting Club, took bronze in the men’s double trap shooting – part of a medal-strewn day for Team GB at the Rio Olympics.
Scott took bronze with a perfect round, hitting all 30 clays, to defeat compatriot Tim Kneale.
It was one of six medals won in a fantastic day for Great Britain, and one of three won by athletes with Hertfordshire links.
Joe Clarke, who trains at the Lee Valley White Water Centre in Waltham Cross, won gold in kayak K1 class and Max Whitlock, from Hemel Hempstead, won bronze in the men’s all-around gymnastics competition.
Teresa Heritage, cabinet member for public health, localism and libraries at Hertfordshire County Council congratulated the athletes.
