Great Britain's Paralympic shooter Karen Butler has revealed that she is "elated" to have competed at a home Games despite finishing sixth in the women's R8-50m rifle three positions-SH1 final.
The 45-year-old, who failed to medal, admits that she is grateful to have reached the final after failing to make the ParalympicsGB team in Athens eight years ago and Beijing in 2008.
"I feel relieved but elated," BBC Sport quotes Butler as saying. "That's the experience I've been dreaming of. I've achieved my goals. A home Games is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we're never going to do this again."
