The United States claim the top of the medal ranking in Acapulco


27.03.2017


ISSF World Cup Shotgun · Acapulco, MEX
USA Shooting pocketed four total medals at the ISSF World Cup Stage 2 in Acapulco: two Golds and 2 Silvers. The three other Golds were delivered to India, Italy and Spain.
Just like two years ago, when they pocketed four of the five Gold medals up for grabs, the United States of America finished atop the medal standings in Acapulco, where the second ISSF World Cup stage of the 2017 season just concluded.

Ashley Carroll and Kimberly Rhode were the two shooters who made the American national anthem resound at the Club de Caza, Tiro y Pesca de Acapulco, respectively pocketing the women’s Trap and Skeet Gold medal.

For 22-year-old Carroll it’s the first career World Cup medal, while for 37-year-old Rhode the count says 26. The one she pocketed in Acapulco is the 10th Gold of her career in the Skeet Women.

Caitlin Connor (26) and Frank Thompson (29) both secured a Silver medal: Connor in the women’s Skeet, behind Rhode, and Thompson in the men’s Skeet, behind Marco Sablone of Italy, who earned his country’s only medal in Mexico.

Only one of the five World Records set in New Delhi has been bested, and both Ashley Carroll and New Zealand’s Natalie Rooney set the new one in the Trap Women event, where they crushed 42 out of 50 targets in the final.

In his re-match against Australia’s James Willett, then, Ankur Mittal crushed 75 clays and equalled the record his rival set in the first stage of the season.

Finally, in the women’s Skeet final, USA’s Katharina Monika Jacob set a new Junior World Record with 30 target hits.

The season will now continue next month with the ISSF World Cup Stage 3, scheduled in Larnaka (CYP) from April 28th to May 8th.
