    Topshot is second highest qualifier for tonights final of the Mens 50m Prone rifle (Singles) happening now.

    Only 1 point under highest qualifier and in good stead for a Gold or at least a Silver but clearly a very tight one.

    Woo-hoo, just watched you and you were brilliant, Warren!

    A very big congratulations on the Silver Medal and the nerves of steel - were all proud of you. Although, next time, could you put a patch over your eye that says "Hi Snobs!"??? ;)

    Cheers

    Yes, see Coffee2Di4s response 2 posts above. Im fairly sure Di isnt in Delhi at the moment :)
    As for accessing video replays,due to the sheer number of medals Australia won, I dont know if they could provide full replays of all these events let alone the ones in which we didnt win medals. There may be a highlights one.

    Warren, you are our Delhi champion.

    You won silver in tough completion that could have gone any way on the day. Only two points between gold and bronze.

    I hope you do as well with your top coffee shots.

    It,s okay, i missed the event even though i spent most of the day glued to the TV and being on Coffeesnobs.
    Congrats again Warren. Australia and Coffeesnobs are proud of your achievements.
    Now we just need a CSer to do well in the world barista championships, or the Danes home barista championships ;)
