Moscow is ready to stage the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) Shotgun World Championships with mixed team events due to be held for the first time.
The standalone shotgun event is taking place in Russia’s capital city for the first time, although the city has previously held the full Championships on two occasions.
An Opening Ceremony is scheduled to take place this evening at the Foxlodge Shooting Range, venue for the competition.
Teams have already arrived for the Championships with athletes having started to become accustom to their surroundings during training.
Action will officially begin tomorrow with men’s and women’s trap qualification getting underway before the finals of the latter being held on Saturday (September 2) for both senior and junior athletes.
The men’s competition will conclude the following day.
Mixed team trap will make its debut at the Championships next Monday (September 4), with the discipline having been included on the programme for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The ISSF decided earlier this year to introduced mixed gender team events in trap, 10m air rifle and 10m air pistol for Tokyo 2020 as they moved to implement the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) Agenda 2020.

Part of the project set up by the IOC was to equal the balance between disciplines for men and women in the sports included on the Olympic programme.
Men’s double trap was removed from the Olympic programme to accommodate mixed team trap competition.
The discipline will still be held at the World Championships, with competition taking place on Tuesday (September 5), the day after the trap team event.
Attention will then turn toward skeet shooting, with training and qualification days due to be held next Wednesday and Thursday (September 6 and 7).
Women’s senior and junior skeet finals will be held the next day, followed by men’s action on September 9.
A mixed team skeet final will conclude the Championships on September 10.

My comment:- A very interesting initiative. In addition to encouraging young students to take an interest in the sport of shooting, students, due to the sport's ethos, will develop self-control that will directly benefit the studies and learning in the school.

Sdruccioli sets a new record to win Skeet final on his home turf

Final Skeet Men Junior

ISSF Junior World Cup Shotgun · Porpetto, ITA

The 19-year old Italian shooter beat USA’s Christian Elliott and his teammate Matteo Chiti to win the last final match of the 2017 ISSF Junior World Cup in Porpetto, Italy.
The Skeet Men Junior final closed the 2017 ISSF Junior World Cup in shotgun events in Porpetto, Italy, today. 

Once again, host country Italy turned out to be the protagonist of the competition, placing two athletes on the podium in first and third position, while USA secured silver. 

Elia Sdruccioli, 19, at his second participation in an ISSF Junior World Cup, claimed the brightest medal on his home turf with 57 hits out of 60 targets in the final, turning out to be unreachable as he set a new junior world record. 

Sdruccioli shattered the previous record of 55 hits, established by Johan Birklykke of Denmark at the European Championship in Baku, on the 1st of August 2017. 

Sdruccioli said: 

“It has been a difficult competition, due to the weather conditions. It has been quite hot down here in Porpetto, and yesterday - during the first competition day - the wind kicked-in and disturbed us during the match.” 

The Italian shooter made it to the final with the second-highest qualification score,119 +2 hits, facing some of the best junior shooters of the world in the medal match. 

“Today, I started-off the final with a lot of emotions,” he continued, “I was a bit stressed. But then I zeroes in, and I finally calmed down as I saw the other finalists missing some clays, and therefore my lead increasing series after series.”

“I have been training a lot for this. I started the season in February, training five days a week, morning and afternoon, both on the range and at the gym. Hard work pays off.”

“I am now preparing for the ISSF World Championship in Moscow. In about ten days I will fly to Russia, and that’s my next goal to accomplish. Then, of course, I am looking forward to the next two years. To participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics is a dream.” 

USA’s Christian Elliott, 19, currently ranked 63rd in the world as he competed in a seniors’ world cup in Larnaka (CYP) earlier this year, finished in second place with 55 hits, clinching his first international medal ever. 

Elliott left in third place the second Italian finalist, Matteo Chiti, 19, who pocketed today’s bronze medal with 44 hits. 

The 2015 European Championship junior silver medalist, Eetu Kallioinen of Finland, 19, took the 4th place with a score of 36 targets. He was followed by the reigning junior world champion, Italy’s Valerio Palmucci, 5th with 25 hits, and by USA’s first-time participant Elijah Keith Ellis, 16, who took the 6th place with 16 hits.
