    Women's Trap is first up on the program for World Championships in Munich Germany beginning today. The Junior Women took Gold, Miranda Wilder, and Bronze won by Rachael Heiden of the USA! Way to go girls! None of the USA's Women including Corey Cogdell ('08 Olympic Bronze Medal winner) made the final but finished in 8th place just 2 targets out of the final six. Terry DeWitt (USAMU) and Susan Sledge also made the trip but did not make the final round. You can see complete results at issf-sports.org/results and you can watch the finals on the T.V. Feed found on the web site. You can also find the schedule for the rest of the events with Men's Trap beginning on Monday.

    Thanks for the information Chris and Julie.

    Our good friends from Canada, Paul and Drew Shaw, are there representing their country. Nice to see a father and son make it there.

    We wish all the shooters well...

    USA Junior Women also took 3rd for "team."

    Men's Trap:

    Jacob Turner made it to the finals and finished 6th. Well done!

    Dominic Grazioli finished 37th

    John Mullins finished 39th

    Junior Men's Trap:

    Matthew Gossett is in 4th and has qualified for the finals, so his finishing position is TBD.

    Casey Wallace finished 8th

    Morgan Harbison finished 42nd.

    They took 2nd place for Junior Men's "team."

    So here's what I don't understand.

    The Olympics dropped women's doubles trap, but this competition in Munich still has it as an event?!?!

    Interesting to see Faulds name missing from the competitors lists for Double Trap...

    Looks like our home boy Michael Diamond ran into a shoot off for the last few spots in the final but missed out. 121/125 is nothing to sneeze at either ! Adam Vella of Aus finished on 119/125 too. Hopefully I will be having a one on one coaching session with Adam when he gets back in a week or so. Really looking forward to some techniques advice from a pro !

    Yes... Double Trap for Women was dropped for the Olympics but is contested at the World Championships. Also Running Target was dropped completely from the Olympics but is still shot at the World Championships.

    The USA team just won the Gold Medal for the Men's Double Trap Team event and set a new world record, beating the second place Russians by 6 birds and the third place Brits by 8. Richmond and Crawford ran their final round with perfect 50 scores; Holguin shot a 47.

    Finals tonight (6PM Munich, 11AM Chicago).

    Damn fine shooting.

    Fantastic shooting by the Mens Double Team of Richmond, Holguin and Crawford. Both Richmond and Holguin advanced to the final and young Billy Crawford missed the shootoff by one target. He is getting closer and closer with each event. There is only a 3 bird difference between 1st place and 6th place so the medals are up for grabs.

    The USA has four world class doubles shooters right now with Eller being the other shooter - that is a talented group.

    The Junior Men took Bronze in the team event.

    Joshua Richmond ran the final round with another 50 straight and won the Gold Medal in the Men's Double Trap Finals with a 196, tying the Final World Record, and finishing three birds ahead of Russia and China.

    Jeffrey Holguin finished four birds back with a 192 in fourth place, and one bird out of the shootoffs.

    The Olympic Committee has a history of dropping or changing women's events. It seems they get upset when women shoot a better score than the men do. So shooting events that can be compared are either dropped or changed. HMB

    Commentator also said it was the first time he could remember someone going 100x100 in shootoffs in back to back shoots. I'm really digging watching the international shooters in the ISSF site in real time, too bad their season is just about over until next year..

    What made this Final exciting was that six shooters had to shoot off for 5th and 6th to get into the Final. Jeff tied with Binyuan Hu, Pan, Chetcuti, Fokeev and Aldeehani, so Jeff and Binyuan went on to the Final and battled it out again...shades of '08 Beijing, with Binyuan finishing tied with Mosin for 2nd/3rd, they had to shoot off for silver and bronze and Jeff finished back by one target in 4th. Wow! Talk about a close Final!

    The USA shooters set a new World Record for Team DT, after tying the WR last year taking the Team Gold 2 years running...

    Josh Richmond was giving 110% out there and it paid off in spades. He was just killing those targets! We really enjoyed this Final Round! With Glenn Eller back on the scene(he won Nationals) the USAMU is ready to have a banner year in 2011...so wish them luck and come out and watch if you can! They will be shooting the Fall Selection Match in Kerrville Texas September 1-5 for DT. Check the USA Shooting site(usashooting.org) for schedule and more information. World Cup Finals in Istanbul,Turkey will be the last international match of the year, check the issf site(issf-sports.org) for information on that match.

    Don't forget there's still Skeet to shoot in Munich! The fun is not over yet! Watch Vincent Hancock go for another Gold Medal along with Kim Rhode, Haley Dunn and all of the other American shooters this weekend!

    Here's the podium shot for Men's Team Double Trap. Left to right on the first place stand (I think) are Jeff Holguin, Josh Richmond, and Billy Crawford.
