Ed Ling Wins English Open ABT in Emphatic Style
Ed Ling shot a stunning 200 straight to win the English Open ABT at Bywell Shooting Ground on Sunday afternoon (20 May).
The rest of the field could only watch on, as Ed put in a ruthless performance and completed an astonishing 200 straight. Tony Coulstock finished runner-up on 197 and Cameron Hay held his nerve in a shoot off to finish third after scoring 196.
Abbey Ling retained her Ladies title, shooting 189 for the second successive year in the competition to finish three points ahead of Mary Rowley, whilst Theo shot an unrivalled 195 to comfortably earn the Junior title.
However, Ed and Theo's father Steve was narrowly denied in the Veteran category to prevent a clean sweep for the Ling family on the day. Steve's score of 193 was beaten by Nigel Collis on 194 who walked away with the Veteran honours.
It was equally close in the Colts category as Corey Doble shot 182 to finish one point ahead of Lucy Hall to claim victory.
