Shooters from 3 continents, won medals in the Skeet Men Final today.

Qualification rounds saw some excellent shooting with 5 shooters out of a field of 77 ending up with the same score of 123 targets out of 125, which meant they all had to shoot off for the remaining 3 places to join the 3 shooters that had already qualified to get into the final.

The final did not disappoint as it was more intense than the qualification rounds.  The eventual Gold medal winner of the Skeet Men's competition was Stefan NILSSON from Sweden, who added another gold to his ever expanding medal tally by hitting 58 out of a possible 60 targets to claim the victory.

Federico GIL from Argentina won his first Silver medal at a World Cup competition only one target behind NILSSON.  Azmy MEHELBA from Egypt was the winner of the Bronze medal, his 2nd bronze at a WC. 

By the end of this final, 12 countries have won medals in the Cyprus World Cup.

The competition will continue tomorrow with the Trap Men's Final.
