 Amber Hill stunned the shooting world to win International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup gold at her very first attempt.

Amber was the youngest participant at the competition in Acapulco, Mexico but also broke the junior world record during qualification.

The young skeet shooter came into the sport five years ago, when she made a life changing decision to go to the shooting range with her grandfather rather than watch her brother play rugby.

Her win at the World Cup came down to a final shoot-off with a 29-year-old, multi-medallist, from Italy. Amber's composed approach and nerves of steel saw her shoot to near perfection, hitting 15 out of 16 targets.

And, with the influence of the London Olympics making her follow this line of competition, Hill has now set her sights firmly set on the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games.

Amber, who will compete in Dubai next, said: "It has been an amazing experience. I never even thought I'd reach the finals at a World Cup.

"I felt I had nothing to prove when I entered the finals so I didn't really have many nerves.

"After the first final I was guaranteed a medal so going into the gold medal match I was happy whatever the outcome. 

"I can't believe that in my first proper World Cup competition I have won gold, it still hasn't really sunk in.
