UCD takes home haul from Nationals

The 2014 National Air Gun championships took place over the weekend with the 10m Air Pistol National Championships on Saturday 26th and The 10 Air Rifle National Championships on Sunday 27th April.

Both events were held in the UCD Rifle Club range with competitors from around the country taking part.

UCD did exceptionally well over the two days, starting on Saturday with Joe Thompson winning the Pistol Nationals for a second year running, with a very impressive display in the final. Sunday say this trend continue in the Air Rifle events with Evan Boyd taking third in the Men’s Air Rifle, behind Irish Paralympian Sean Baldwan and DURC’s Stephen Murphy. In the Womens final Maria Treacy and Claire Leyden took the silver and bronze medals, behind DURC’s Aisling Miller.

UCD also did fantastically well in the class events, with John Lancaster taking third in Class A, while in class B UCD took first and second with Jianning Xu and Nicolas Nalpas. In Class C UCD did a clean sweep with Chris Loo, S Muhammad Mohd Zali and Mairead Lancaster taking the gold, silver and Bronze. In class D UCD took the top two spots, with the gold going to Timothy Kennedy and silver to Ting Zhang. In the Junior competition Jianning Xu took first place, followed by Mairead Lancaster and Timothy Kennedy.

Well done to all the the UCD shooters who took part in the National Championship it’s so good to see our own shooters doing so well on the national stage.
