With only the top eight qualifying, Gault could only finish 13th meaning that his chance of winning a 19th medal this afternoon has gone.

The 60-year-old, who announced his retirement after the qualifiers this morning, drew level with Australian shooter Phillip Adams on 18 medals after winning a bronze medal in the 10m air pistol event on Saturday.
