ISSF Junior World Cup Shotgun · Porpetto, ITA

Host country Italy finishes atop of the medals standings in Porpetto. Four new junior world records set across five events.

The Skeet Men Junior final won by Italy’s Elia Sdruccioli with a new junior world record of 57 hits closed the 2017 ISSF Junior World Cup in shotgun events in Porpetto, Italy, today. 

 

220 athletes coming from 33 nations competed in the Cup, which was officially closed by the member of the ISSF Executive Committee Kevin Kilty this afternoon. 

 

Junior athletes from all over the world competed in Trap, Double Trap and Skeet events, as well as in a test match of the new Trap Mixed Team event that has been recently approved by the ISSF and the IOC for inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Program. 

 

The Italian team dominated the competition, finishing atop of the medals standings on their home turf with a total of 6 medals (2 Gold, 2 Silver, 2 Bronze). 


The United States shotgun junior team, accompanied here in Porpetto by the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Champion Vincent Hancock, finished in second with 1 Gold and 1 Silver, while Spain and Great Britain tied in third place with 1 Gold medal each. 

 

Four new junior world records were set during this Junior World Cup. 

 

Adria Martinez Torres won Spain the Trap Men Junior gold medal with a new record of 46 hits. USA’s Katharina Monika Jacob scored 47 targets to set the new junior world record at the Skeet Women event, while Italy's Elia Sdruccioli hit 57 clays establishing a new junior record at today’s Skeet Men event. Great Britain’s James Dedman also scored a new junior world record, with 57 hits in the Double Trap event, yesterday. 

 

Junior shotgun shooters will soon meet again, at the 2017 ISSF World Championship to be held in Moscow, where separate junior events will be held between the 30th of August and the 11th of September.
