Van Nus breaks own Australian record
18:41 AEST Sat Jul 30 2011

Robyn Van Nus has broken her own Australian record in winning the women's air rifle at a national tournament in Brisbane on Saturday.

The Beijing Olympian shot a 397 out of 400 in her qualifying round to better her old mark of 396 and take a six point lead into the final of the Australia Cup 3 event.

The 28-year-old West Australian, followed her qualifying round with a score of 103.4 in the final to finish with an overall score of 500.4 to claim the gold medal. Alethea Sedgman finished in second place, while Alice Styles came in third.

Van Nus, the current Australian No.1, said the new record was a step in the right direction.

"To claim the Australian record is a great personal achievement but the most exciting thing is that it is a new PB," Van Nus said.

"I had been struggling with my air rifle a bit recently but today it all came together.

"I want to be shooting these scores consistently so hopefully I can repeat this performance tomorrow."

In the men's 10m air rifle, William Godward recovered from a slow start to take home gold ahead of John Coombes and Dane Sampson.

Godward qualified for the final in a score of 588, before shooting 102.7 in the final to secure the title.

The Australia Cup 3 event is the last chance for Australia's shotgun athletes to press their claims for selection ahead of the World Shotgun Championships in Serbia in September.

The team is expected to be announced on Monday.
