The Isle of Man’s Tim Kneale has won Silver at the Commonwealth Games at Australia’s Gold Coast.

Watched on by a large Manx contingent including the Island’s Chief Minister, Kneale was calm and cool in the searing afternoon sun. He goes one better after he won Bronze eight years ago.

Kneale scored 70, well clear of the third place Ankur Mittal from India on 53. The winner was Scotland’s David McMath who scored 74.

Kneale told Energy FM: "It's very emotional to come here and represent the island and go back with a medal." 

"It's a difficult range to shoot. If we could just grind out some consistent scores we'd be thereabouts in the final. I didn't know how I was positioned going into the last round so it was just to prove I could still shoot 26s."

"It was a great field out there, with James Willet (AUS) from the Rio final in 2016 and David McGath (SCO) as well. Some great competition. It was great to see Pakistan there as well; you don't often see them."
