The ISSF Shotgun World Cup in Nicosia, Cyprus has come to an end

The last final of this World Cup was the Men's Trap competition. It saw the highest number of athletes take part in the qualification rounds, with a total of 80 shooters.

Top six athletes made it straight into the final without the need for a shoot off.  One target separated the 1st and the 6th place after qualification, with the highest score being 122 out of 125 targets.  

In the final Matthew COWARD-HOLLEY from Great Britain took an early lead only missing 2 targets out of his first 25 targets but he eventually slipped back into a Bronze medal position.  

Anton GLASNOVIC from Croatia was neck and neck with the German shooter Andreas LOEW for the first 25 targets of the final.  

The next 15 targets saw him open a lead of three targets to claim his first ever Gold medal in a World Cup with a score in the final of 44 out of 50 targets.

Andreas LOEW won the Silver medal hitting 41 out of 50 targets. This was his first ever medal in a Trap competition after he made a successful transition from Double Trap.

The final medal standings saw Germany claim the top spot, with the Russian Federation taking the second place. Croatia, France, Poland and Sweden shared the third place.
