ISSF World Cup Final Shotgun · Nicosia, CYP
The final competition of the 2015 ISSF season is about to begin in Nicosia (CYP), where the ISSF World Cup Final in Shotgun events will take place from October 15th to October 21st.
58 athletes coming from 28 countries qualified for the Final. Most of them by earning World Cup points through the four stages of the season, held in Acapulco (MEX), Al Ain (UAE), Larnaca (CYP) and Gabala (AZE); others by reaching the podium at the 2015 ISSF Shotgun World Championship, happened in Lonato (ITA) earlier this month, or by being the World Cup Final title holder.
A single wild card spot has been assigned to Cyprus’ Andri Eleftheriou, as the host nation has the right to be represented by at least 2 athletes, and the only Cypriot qualified was Skeet Men shooter Andreas Chasikos.
The first final is scheduled for Saturday, October 17th, when at 2:30 PM (UTC+3) the Skeet Women title will be assigned, followed by the Double Trap Men at 4:00 PM.
