Sitting next to Australian Nick Sullivan who is the Team Manager. He said the Koreans and Chinese had good medal chances along with both Australians. The Iraqi was mentioned for human interest. --LauraHale (talk) 08:24, 30 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Sullivan said that Natalie was slow in starting, took a while to settle in. She took a large number of practice shots before shooting. Kosmala shot 99/100 in the span it took Natalie to take her first shot according to Sullivan. The board confirmed this score of 99. With 5 shots into the second round, she had 49/50, getting a 9 on the fifth shot. The board shows that Smith shot 80/80 in her first 8 shots in her first round.--LauraHale (talk) 08:36, 30 August 2012 (UTC)Reply
