NATIMUK shooter Alethea Sedgman's dream of back-to-back Commonwealth Games gold medals is over after she failed to qualify for the final of the women's 50-metre three position shoot on Tuesday night.
Sedgman finished with a total of 566 points in the qualification round, placing 10th out of a field of 23 competitors.
Only the top eight shooters made it through to the final.
Sedgman's score was an agonising two points below the total of eighth place qualifier Jenna MacKenzie of New Zealand, who scored 568.
The top qualifier was Singapore's Jasmine Ser, who qualified with a games record score of 581.
Ser went on to claim the gold medal in the final.
Sedgman was the defending gold medallist in the event after winning it as a 16-year-old at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010.
She also qualified for the women's 50-metre prone event, but elected not to compete in it in favour of concentrating on defending her three position gold medal.
