World Championship – Olympic Skeet
The massive scores have followed all the way throught the event. This ground is well known for big scores. The targets have good visability and great weather.

Well with that in mind – surprise, surprise we have ARAMBURU Juan Jose from Spain who equals the World Record with a 125×125.

The cut off for the Flash Final was a shoot off on 123. After the final we ended up with 3 shooters on 149 x 150.

After the shoot off we ended up with the below medalists:-
GOLD ARAMBURU Juan Jose (ESP) 149 x 150
SILVER BROVOLD Tore (Norway) 149 x 150
BRONZE ALRASHIDI Abdullah (Kuwait) 149 x 150

The Great Britain shooters shot some really good scores but it was just not enough to make the finals.
