Mick Gault has increased his personal medal tally to 14 following a silver medal performance in the Men's 50m Individual Pistol competition.

The Englishman came second to Indian sharpshooter Samaresh Jung, and surpassed the English record of swimmer Karen Pickering who won 13 medals.

Gault, a 51-year-old Royal Air Force engineer, has won three medals at the Melbourne Games: silver for the 10m Air Pistol Pairs, bronze in the 50m Pistol Pairs, and today's silver.

Friedhelm Sack of Trinidad and Tobago took out the bronze, managing to deny India another medal, holding off Vivek Singh.

Australia's David Moore finished seventh.

Gault was disappointed at being unable to wrest the gold medal which he won in Manchester in 2002 from the Indian shooting sensation Jung.

Gault said after achieving his bag of 14, “I had a lot of tension and nerves, it’s a big thing to defend one’s title.”

Jung now has a total of four gold from the Games and is in the running for yet another three.

“It’s finals, anything can happen,” said the multiple gold medallist on the unpredictable nature of finals.
