Amber Hill has climbed the podium one step at a time during the ISSF World Cup season, reaching the peak on Sunday with a gold medal in Malta.
Hill scored 52 out of 60 targets to defeat American Amber English’s score of 48.
She can now add gold to the bronze from the season-opening World Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico in March after which she bagged silver in Changwon, South Korea, in April.
Hill, Windsor-born and a former Claires Court School pupil, claimed silver at the Commonwealth Games in April, last winning a World Cup gold in 2013 during her first year as a senior shooter.
“I’m so happy to finally come away with another gold,” said Hill.
“[Malta] was one of the trickiest competitions I’ve ever shot at as it was really windy and the conditions haven’t been perfect, but that made it really interesting.”
The final World Cup event of 2018 will take place in Tucson, USA.
