The ISSF Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun World Cup in Gabala was closed by today's Trap Men final. 34 Rio 2016 Olympic quotas were distributed to 25 countries in 15 shooting events. Three world records were equalled.

Today's Trap Men final concluded the 2015 ISSF Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun World Cup held in Gabala, Azerbaijan, from the 7th through the 15th of August.

 

Over 1100 athletes coming from 90 countries competed in the last world cup stage of the season, trying to secure one of the 34 Rio 2016 Olympic quota places up for grabs and world cup final's qualification points.

 

The People's Republic of China finished atop of the overall medal standings of the competition, with 6 golds, 4 silvers and 2 bronze, for an unmatchable total of 12 medals. The United States of America finished in second place with 5 medals: 2 golds, 2 silvers, 1 bronze. The Russian Federation followed in third, with the same number of podiums: 2 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronzes.

 

Three world records were equalled during the stage: the Trap Men's (75 targets, by Jean Pierre Brol Cardenas of Guatemala), the 50m Rifle 3 Positions Women's (592 points, by Sylwia Bogacka of Poland) and the Skeet Women's (75 targets, by Aleksandra Jarmolinska also from Poland).

 

34 Olympic Quotas were awarded to 25 different countries, in Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun events, here in Gabala. 267 Rio 2016 shooting quotas have been distributed by the ISSF so far, since August 2014.
