Commonwealth Games 2006: Complete coverage

India's Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore kisses his gold medal after winning the men's double trap final on day eight of the 18th Commonwealth Games at the Melbourne Gun Club in Melbourne, on Thursday.

Rathore, who fired a total of 181 (137 + 44), retained the title he won in Manchester four years ago.

"I am happy that I lived up to the pressure of the sport and ultimately the reputation is kept in tact," he said after the win.

South Africa's Byron Swanton won the silver and William Chetcuti took the bronze for Malta.
