Great Britain's Seonaid McIntosh earned a Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games quota place after finishing fourth in the 50m rifle three positions finals at the World Championships in South Korea.

McIntosh narrowly missed out on a third medal having won an individual gold and team bronze earlier on at the event.

"The quota place is certainly going to make my final year at university a bit easier," said the 22-year-old Scot.

On Friday, Aaron Heading and Kirsty Barr won a bronze in trap mixed pairs.

But they missed out on a quota place, which was on offer to the top two finishers.

Slovakia took gold and the British pair equalled Russia's 33 clays - but the silver went to the Russian pair because of their better record in qualifying.

"We're absolutely over the moon with our bronze medal," world number one-ranked trap shooter Heading said.

"Me and Kirsty pulled it out of the bag for Great Britain," he added.

Both won silver medals at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year.
