Ryan Cockbill won Britain's third medal at the World Shooting Para-sport World Cup in the UAE with bronze in the R4 mixed 10m air rifle standing event.

Korea's Guensoo Kim took the title ahead of France's Tanguy de la Forest.

Cockbill's medal follows the gold and silver won by Tim Jeffrey and James Bevis in the R9 50m rifle prone event on Tuesday.

On Friday, Matt Skelhon and Lorraine Lambert will compete in the R6 mixed 50m rifle prone event. Bevis, Jeffrey and Cockbill will finish their campaigns in Saturday's R5 mixed 10m air rifle prone.
