Colac Gun Club product Penny Smith has won gold at a World Cup event in Finland.

The 24-year-old boosted her 2020 Olympic dream with victory against the world’s top shooters at the International Shooting Sport Federation event on the weekend.

“It is such a relief to get the second Women’s Trap quota for Australia,” Smith told the Shooting Australia website.

“I believed in myself and took a positive attitude into the final, and I am really proud of my performance here in Finland!”

Camperdown’s Smith told the Colac Herald last month she was optimistic about her chances at representing Australia at next year’s Tokyo Games after securing a bronze medal at a World Championships event in Italy.
