NEWPORT shooter Elena Allen paid tribute to her husband after winning silver in the women's skeet at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow yesterday.

Allen was edged out in the gold medal match by Australia's Laura Coles to claim Wales' second medal of Glasgow 2014.

"I'm very happy. It's nice to walk away with something," Allen told BBC Wales.

"My husband is everything. He coaches me, he's my psychologist, my masseuse, my physio, my everything. It was a team effort."

Allen dropped just three shots in the final but 27-year-old Coles was hotter, nailing 14 of her 16 clays to top the podium.

Husband Malcolm, from Abercarn, is in action in the men's skeet qualifiers today.
