President Rossi opens the ISSF World Cup for Shotgun in Lonato del Garda


President Luciano Rossi  has opened the ISSF World Cup for shotgun, at Lonato del Garda, the final event of the 2024 season which is shaping up to be the perfect dress rehearsal for the Olympic Games in Paris. The event runs from 10 – 19 June, at the magnificent Trap Concaverde Campo di Tiro a Volo, close to Lake Garda in Italy.


“This event is always a highlight of the ISSF season, but this year it is the last opportunity to see our best shotgun athletes in action before the Olympic Games in Paris. Close to 400 athletes from 72 nations are taking part, and with the opportunity to earn ranking points, and fine tune for the Games for those qualified, we are expecting excellent competition. I would like to thank the organisers for their fantastic work in preparing all facilities and thanks to all officials and delegates as well as the volunteers.”


Qualifying for trap for both men and women takes place today, with finals tomorrow and all the action can be followed live on ISSF TV, with the final of the Trap for women starting at 1500h (local time)
