Ben Llewellin celebrated a double medal haul at the European Shotgun Championships in Cyprus.
The Welsh clay shooter and four-times British champion, helped Great Britain secure a fourth gold medal of the Championships in Larnaca in a mixed skeet team victory alongside Amber Hill.
The pair triumphed against Rio 2016 individual gold medallist Diana Bacosi and her Italian compatriot Tammaro Cassandro, a two-time world gold medallist.

Llewellin and Hill added to their respective bronze and gold medals from their individual finals as they won 6-4 after five rounds.Had Llewellin finished in the top two places individual skeet final, then he would have secured a automatic quota spot for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
Llewellin – who missed out narrowly for the Tokyo Games – will have a further opportunity to make the qualification for Paris.
Bronze medals went to Jakub Tomeček and Barbora Šumová of the Czech Republic as they got the better of Rigina Meftakhetdinova and Niyaz Aghazada of Azerbaijan 7-3 in the first bronze-medal match.
Sweden’s Stefan Nilsson and Victoria Larsson were victorious in the second bronze-medal match 6-2 against Greek shooters Emmanouela Katzouraki and Nikolaos Mavrommatis.
