Nice Gold for SVK team in Changwon. The pair Zuzana Rehák-Štefečeková/Erik Varga won the mixed Trap :clap:

and only a disapponting 5th place for Italy...:facepalm::wall:

 

by the way, success also for Viktoria Chaika (BLR, women's Air Pistol) and for local hero Kim Junhong (KOR, Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol), in this case also with a stunning finals world record, in the remaining competitions from today...

 

China and Russia still the only 2 Countries with more than 1 Gold medal...meanwhile now there are 6 Nations with just 1 Gold and 20 with at least a medal (those with no gold included)...

oh, man! he got so close...:cry:

 

I'm talking of Marco De Nicolo, the Italian veteran rifle specialist, who was second in the Men's 3-Position Rifle this morning. The winner was Sergey Kamenskiy (RUS).

 

Meanwhile the other competition from today (the Pistol Mixed Team event) was won by the Chinese pair of Ji Xiaojing and Wu Jaiyu.

 

Therefore Russia and China are always on top of the medal table, now with 3 Gold medals apiece. No changes in the lower ranks.

last pistol/rifle competition of this world cup stage...

 

Chinese Wang Zeru wins the women's 50m 3-position rifle ahead of Austria's Franziska Peer and Slovenia's Ziva Dvorsak.

Therefore China put some distance between them and Russia in the medal table, with no major changes in the lower rankings...

 

Italy's Petra Zublasing still totally out of shape...:cry::facepalm::wall:

forelast event in Changwon...the women's skeet was won by the US veteran Kimberly Rhode, who also established a new world record for the final series (58/60)...

Amber Hill (GBR) ended up in second place and Amber English (USA, despite her family name :lol:) in third...

only a disppointing 4th place for Italy thanks to Katiuscia Spada, with the "big guns" Chiara Cainero and Diana Bacosi already out in the qualifying stages (and not even close to the score they would have needed to make the final 6)...

China always number #1 in the medal table with 4 Gold medals ahead of Russia with 3 and a bunch of other Countries stuck to just 1 Gold...

last day in Changwon...and it was a great battle between the 2 superstars of the men's skeet, Vincent Hancock vs Gabriele Rossetti...

 

this time the American won the contest, equalling also the finals world record with 59 hits out of 60 targets. Rossetti was second with "only" 55 hits, meanwhile the bronze medal went to Juan Josè Aramburu of Spain.

 

with this result, China won the medal table with 4 gold medals ahead of Russia with 3 and the USA with 2.

Italy (not a good week for us, looking at the overall performance), Australia, South Korea, Belarus and Finland followed the top 3 Nations with just 1 Gold medal each.

the full ranking of this Korean WC stage is available here:

Yesterday a new Pistol & Rifle Shooting World Cup stage came to an end...

after the Asian trip, the tour flew to Fort Benning, Georgia, USA (the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Shooting Range)...

and the final Medal Table didn't change their main "owner", since China dominated the field and won 4 Gold Medals...

following the Asian super-team, we have 6 European Nations with 1 Gold Medal each (GRE, ESP, GER, HUN, BUL, CRO)...

the Medal table is completed by 5 other Countries that got at least 1 Medal, but no Gold ones (SRB, DEN, FIN, FRA and THA)...

full results, here:

http://www.issf-sports.org/competitions/venue/schedule_by_discipline.ashx?cshipid=2392

 

for Italy, just a bunch of disappointing results (a couple of bitter 4th places included)...:cry::facepalm::wall:

World Cup, Stage #3 (Munich, GER)

 

Women's 10m Air Rifle

 

Gold: :TPE Lin Ying-Shin

Silver: :CHN Wu Mingyang

Bronze: :DEN Rikke Maeng Ibsen

 

to be noticed...the Italian girls who officially competed this morning have been an absolute disaster (as usual...and as expected), meanwhile our best shooter, the reigning World Champion in this discipline, Petra Zublasing, started only in the MQS Extra Series and had a score which would have allowed her to dominate the qualification round of the actual world cup event (2 points better than the Korean Jung, who won the early round, but finally ended up only in 7th place)...

I just can't understand our coaches' choice...:mumble::facepalm:

Feel like that is Denmark’s best result in a long time.
