Taunton farmer Edward Ling has added to Britain's Olympic tally table by securing a bronze medal in the men's trap shooting.

 

The 33-year-old Somerset arable farmer farms with his father, Steven back home in Wellington.

 

His wife, Abbey took to Twitter to express her excitement of her husband's achievement saying they were all 'sick as pigs'.

 

Mr Ling, who became the third Team GB medalist in the Rio 2016 Olympics, told the Telegraph he would be taking the first available flight back to England on Wednesday to help his father bring in the harvest.

 

He said: "I don’t expect dad has done much because he has been sat in front of the telly watching this, so it will be all hands on when I get back.

 

"I know he’ll be absolutely over the moon for this."

 

After finishing in 21st place at the London 2012 Olympics for the men's trap shooting, and 25th in the Athens 2004 Olympics, tweeted to say he was 'over the moon' about his podium win this year.
