Galiabovitch wins bronze in 10m air pistol

Australian shooter Elena Galiabovitch has claimed bronze in the women’s 10m air pistol at the Commonwealth Games.

The Melbourne-based doctor showed nerves of steel to snare Australia’s first shooting medal at the Belmont complex in Brisbane, scoring 214.9 points in her first international final.

Currently working as a surgical registrar and aiming to become a“urologist”, Galiabovitch had to take the last three months off work to prepare for her Commonwealth debut.

“It’s been really hard work but this is why we do it, I guess. The sacrifices have paid off,” she said.


Meanwhile, 18-year-old Shepparton product Aislin Jones has reached the women’s skeet finals after qualifying with the second-highest score.
