Chinese shooter Duan Yuwei claims Trap Women Junior gold at the end of a challenging final

ISSF Junior World Cup Rifle / Pistol / Shotgun · Sydney, AUS

The People’s Republic of China’s 19-year-old shooter emerged as the Trap Women Junior gold medalist in Sydney (AUS), at the end of a match conducted under some challenging weather conditions.

The second competition day at the ISSF Junior World Cup in Sydney (AUS) closed with a rainy and windy victory signed by Duan Yuwei of the People’s Republic of China, who climbed on the highest step of the Trap Women Junior podium at the end of a very challenging match, heavily conditioned by the weather.

 

However, it took two additional shoot-off targets for the 19-year-old Chinese shooter to prevail over Great Britain’s Augusta Rose Campos-Martyn (19) — 6th at last year’s Junior World Cup in Porpetto (ITA) — as both Duan and her British rival closed the match with 36 hits out of 50 targets.

 

It’s the second gold medal of the competition for the People’s Republic of China, who also climbed atop the podium in the 10m Air Rifle Men Junior event.

 

Duan’s 20-year-old teammate Gao Wendi completed the podium in 3rd place, taking bronze with 30 crushed targets out of 40 and climbing on the ISSF Junior World Cup podium in her first international appearance.

 

Right outside of the medal position, Australia’s Charlie Anna Hudso-Czerniecki (18) — holder of the highest qualification score with 105 hits out of 125 — took 4th place and crushed 22 clays out of 35 in her first international competition ever.

 

Besting the 7th place she obtained at last year’s World Championship, India’s 20-year-old Soumya Gupta took 5th place with 18 hits out of 30 targets, while the third Chinese shooter in the final — 18-year-old Zhang Ting — concluded in 6th position with 12 hits out of 25 clays.

 

On the team podium, the People’s Republic of China’s Zhang, Duan and Gao secured gold, followed by Australia’s Hudson-Czerniecki, Alexis Elsa Preston and Antonia Katharina Loizos in 2nd place, and by Italy’s Erica Sessa, Diana Ghilarducci and Maria Lucia Palmitessa in 3rd position.
