"I have birthday tears," she said

"I am so humbled by the experience.

"This Aussie crowd pushed me the whole way, I can't thank them enough," Scanlan said.

Scanlan has also defended her Glasgow gold finishing with a score of 38 out of 50. 

It was a tight finish with Barr missing the last shot.

Heading into the Games, Scanlan told the Herald Sun she said win or lose, she would be happy to compete on home soil.

"I said to myself today: 'I'm not going to worry about the result, win lose or draw, I'm going to celebrate for my birthday, but boy, am I'm going to celebrate tonight'," she said.

Unfortunately, at the moment, Birmingham, the home of the next Commonwealth Games, is struggling to find a suitable venue for shooting and it might not be part of the Games.
