Rehak Stefecekova and Varga win second mixed team gold in a row

Final Trap Mixed Team

ISSF World Cup Shotgun · Siggiewi, MLT

The Slovakian couple secured their second World Cup gold medal in the Trap Mixed Team event, sealing the competition in Siggiewi (MLT). Two Italian teams completed the podium: Emanuele Buccolieri and Silvana Stanco took silver, while Giovanni Pellielo and Jessica Rossi won bronze.
The ISSF World Cup Stage 5 in Siggiewi (MLT) closed with the Trap Mixed Team event, where Slovakia’s Zuzana Rehak Stefecekova and Erik Varga secured their second consecutive gold medal in this event — which will be part of the Olympic Programme starting from Tokyo 2020.

The Slovakian team — who previously ruled the mixed team in Changwon (KOR) — landed on top of the podium at the end of a faulty match, once again strongly conditioned by the wind.

“Shooting in these conditions has been very difficult, but at the same time very funny!” said Rehak Stefecekova at the end of the medal ceremony. “Conditions, however, have been the same for all the teams, and we didn’t need a very high score to get in the final.”

“It feels great to win again in this event, our next competition will be the European Championship, so they’ll have to be afraid of us!” she added.

34-year-old Varga Rehak Stefecekova and 41-year-old Varga bested Italy’s 21-year-old Emanuele Buccolieri and 25-year-old Silvana Stanco, who battled with their Slovakian rival all along match, losing contact with the top position because of three bad misses between targets number 37 and 40.

At the end of the match, Rehak Stefeckova and Varga took gold with 42 hits out of 50 targets, while Buccolieri and Stanco won silver with 39.

Italy’s 48-year-old Giovanni Pellielo and 26-year-old Jessica Rossi — the team that won silver in this event at last year’s ISSF World Cup Final — completed the podium in 3rd position, pocketing the bronze medal with 31 target hits out of 40 and closing their match with a streak of 13 consecutive hits that allowed them to avoid two eliminations.

Two Spanish teams placed in 4th and 5tn position: Alberto Fernandez (34) and Fatima Galvez (31) crushed 25  of their 35 targets, finishing just outside of the podium, while Antonio Bailon (34) and Beatriz Martinez (32) closed their match with 19 hits out of 20, taking 5th place.

A second Slovakian composed by 33-year-old Marian Kovacocy and 32-year-old Jana Spotakova signed off with 16 crushed targets out of 25 and placed at the bottom of the table in 6th position.

The final stage of the 2018 ISSF World Cup Series will take place in Tucson (USA) next month, from the 9th to the 19th of July.

All final matches will be streamed live on the ISSF website, on the Federation’s Livestream channel and on its official Facebook page.

Aaron Heading pockets Great Britain’s second gold in Malta

Final Trap Men

ISSF World Cup Shotgun · Siggiewi, MLT
The British shooter ruled a troubled Trap Men final, that started with a 90 minutes delay because of the strong wind that conditioned many qualification rounds. It’s the second World Cup gold of his career for Heading, who climbed on the podium alongside silver medal winner Du Yu of the People’s Republic of China and bronze medal winner Marian Kovacocy of Slovakia.
      Great Britain’s 31-year-old shooter Aaron Heading won the men’s Trap final at the Malta National Shooting Ranges, where the fifth stage of the 2018 ISSF World Cup Series is currently taking place.
       Heading, who previously won one World Cup gold in Al Ain (UAE) in 2013, climbed back on top of the podium at the end of a troubled day, as the strong wind conditioned many rounds of the qualification phase and brought to the delay of the final.
       Started 90 minutes after the expected time, the match had two clear protagonists since the very beginning: Aaron Heading and People’s Republic of China’s first-time finalist Du Yu. Indeed, with 20 clays left to shoot, the two shooters had already distanced all of their rivals, and they entered the final 10 targets with the same score: 34 hits.
       There, Du missed three of his first five clays, allowing Heading to take the lead and claim the gold medal with 42 targets hits out 50. The Chinese 31-year-old, instead, concluded with 38, pocketing silver.
       “I feel amazing!” said Heading. “But firstly I want to say thank you to the Maltese Federation for building a great facility, they’ve done an amazing work and everybody here has been fantastic.”
       “Obviously the wind was a big issue, but I kept it together and didn’t give up. I just kept to program, kept going and going, I could hear my opponent missing a couple of targets, but I kept my focus on mine and look what happened!” concluded the British athlete.
       The gold won by Heading is the second in this competition for Great Britain, as it adds up to the one collected by Amber Hill in the women’s Skeet event.
       The podium was then completed by Slovakia’s Marian Kovacocy. The 33-year-old shooter, who won the ISSF World Championship back in 2009 in Maribor (SLO), collected the first World Cup medal of his career, signing off with eight consecutive hits and closing with the score of 30 out of 40 targets.
       Just outside of the medal positions, Cyprus’ 26-year-old Andreas Makri — ranked 96th in the world before this match — placed 4th in his first final appearance, hitting 24 of his 35 targets and barely missing the podium. Another first-time final participant — Lebanon’s 34-year-old Alain Moussa concluded with 20 crushed clays out of 30, missing his last three targets and sliding down in 5th place at the time of the elimination.
       43-year-old David Kostelecky of the Czech Republic was the first shooter eliminated from the contest: the eight-time World Cup medalist, in fact, missed five of his first ten target, compromising his match and closing in 8th place with 17 hits out of 25.

Once again, it’s Satu Makela-Nummela on top of the podium!

Final Trap Women

ISSF World Cup Shotgun · Siggiewi, MLT

The Finnish experienced shooter ruled the women’s Trap final in Siggiewi (MLT), doubling the gold medal she won last April in Changwon (KOR). Germany’s Katrin Quooss and Russian Federation’s Ekaterina Rabaya completed the podium in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.
Finland’s 47-year-old Trap shooter Satu Makela-Nummela won the seventh World Cup gold medal of her career in Siggiewi (MLT), where the fifth stage of the 2018 ISSF World Cup Series is currently underway.

At the Malta National Shooting Ranges, the experienced shooter competed against a panel of multi-decorated shooters, missing three of her first 20 targets and then moving into the top position in the second half of the match, when she only missed two more.
“I’m happy with my performance, I started really well and then I was able to keep that pace despite the weather, it was very hot today,” said Makela-Nummela after the medal ceremony. “I’d say it was like a Finnish sauna!”
“The experience I gained in many finals is very important, so of course, I think it played an important role in today’s match,”concluded Makela-Nummela, who finished with 44 hits out of 50 targets and secured her second consecutive World Cup gold, adding it to the one she won in Changwon (KOR) last April.
On the podium, along with the Finnish 47-year-old, climbed two first-time medalist: Germany’s 31-year-old Katrin Quooss — ISSF World Champion in Granada (ESP) in 2014 — took silver with 41 hits out of 50, sliding down in 2nd place after missing four clays in a row from number 31 to number 34. Then, on the third step of the podium, Russian Federation’s 24-year-old Ekaterina Rabaya secured the bronze medal in her first final participation, crushing 30 out of 40 targets.
The first athlete eliminated from the match was Zuzana Rehak Stefecekova of Slovakia — a two-time Olympic silver medalist who currently sits in eighth position in the World Ranking: the 34-year-old placed 6th with 17 hits out of 20. Five targets later, it was Australia’s Penny Smith who left the contest, taking 5th position with 23 crushed clays out of 30.

Right outside of the medal positions, 28-year-old Carole Cormenier of France concluded the match in 4th place, hitting 27 of her 40 targets and missing what would’ve been the second World Cup medal of her career, after the bronze she won in San Marino (SMR) in 2016.

Vincent Hancock completes the hat-trick in Malta!

Final Skeet Men

ISSF World Cup Shotgun · Siggiewi, MLT

The United States’ phenomenal shooter won his 10th World Cup gold medal in Siggiewi (MLT), completing a streak that included this year’s competitions in Guadalajara (MEX) and Changwon (KOR). Egypt’s Azmy Mehelba and Italy’s Gabriele Rossetti completed the podium in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.
Two-time Olympic Champion Vincent Hancock of the United States of America nailed his third consecutive World Cup gold medal in Siggiewi (MLT), adding it to the ones he claimed in Guadalajara (MEX) and Changwon (KOR) earlier this year.

It’s the tenth World Cup gold of Hancock’s career, and definitely one of the hardest fought for the 29-year-old American shooter. “This was definitely one of hardest competitions to shoot in,” he said after the podium ceremony. “We had a lot of weather changes, sunlight was perfect, Malta is a beautiful country, but the wind was definitely a factor in the last few days. Today it kind of settled down a little bit, the targets were more consistent and we saw a lot of high scores today.”

“Unfortunately in the final we all missed quite a few targets, there was a little bit of a glare because of the sun getting so low behind the high house,” he concluded.

After missing targets number 39 and 40 at station 5, indeed, Hancock slid down in 2nd place, letting Egypt’s 27-year-old Azmy Mehelba take a 1-hit lead.

In the final third of the match, however, the 27-year-old from Alexandria missed three of his targets, while Hancock nailed a perfect streak of 20 hits, climbing back atop the table and sealing his win with 56 hits out of 60 clays. Mehelba finished with 54 hits, securing the second World Cup silver of his career after the one he took in Baku (AZE) in 2016.

Gabriele Rossetti of Italy climbed on the third step of the podium, taking bronze with 45 crushed clays out of 50 and claiming his second consecutive World Cup medal: a few weeks ago in Changwon (KOR), in fact, he won silver.

The 23-year-old reigning Olympic and World Champion — who also won the ISSF World Cup Final trophy in Nicosia (CYP) in 2015 — is still missing his first win in an ISSF World Cup, having secured two silvers and two bronzes so far.

Two Russian shooters placed just outside of the podium positions: 31-yer-old Anton Astakhov — who entered the final with the highest qualification score — took 4th place with 33 hits out of 40 clays, while his 29-year-old teammate Yaroslav Startsev — participating in his first international competition — concluded in 5th place with 26 out of 30.

Competing in his second final match ever, France’s 30-year-old Eric Delaunay finished in 6th position with 16 hits out of 20 targets, missing two costly clays on his last trip to station number 4.
