Shooting ISSF World Cup 2019

Well, at least things will be easier for our continent at the Pan American Games, now if only if the United States can sneak a quota in trap.

At this rate we might as well see Guatemala and Peru with double representation in respective trap events. Even with USA not taking many quotas on global stage, Pan America should see a substantial increase in participation, as now they have considerably more continental spots.

Yeah, Pan America saw an increase of 7 quotas while Europe and Asia got increases of 4 and 3 quotas respectively. Africa had a drop of 1 while Oceania lost 4. The quotas are also now divided in a way that even in a worst case scenario at least one non-United States Pan American nation will be represented in each event.

 

One could argue that Pan America doesn't deserve as many quotas as Asia, but it's more to compensate that 14/38 quotas were handed out before any World Cup events plus the Pan American Games will take place before the last rifle/pistol and shotgun World Cups while Asia will have their qualifier after all of the world events. Plus you could argue that the group qualified through the continental qualifiers are comparable since most of the top Asian talent will have qualified through the World Cups.

finally! Italy win a team event :cheer:

exciting ending of the Gold Medal match...it looked all over with just 7/8 targets for each shooter still to go, but the US pair lost their focus and made too many mistakes in the last few shots and allowed Italy to tied the match...then in the shoot-off the first mistake by Ashley Carroll gave Italy the chance to close it down...and Daniele Resca didn't miss his shot: Italy win!
