    European champion Giovanni Cernogoraz held his nerve in a gold medal shootout to take the Olympic title in the men's trap on Monday.

    The Croatian fired the winning shot after reigning world champion Massimo Fabbrizi missed his fifth in the sudden death contest, settling for silver.


    Cernogoraz had qualified for the final in sixth place. He and Fabbrizi scored 146 to tie for the lead.


    Fehaid Aldeehani of Kuwait took the bronze, also in a shootout, with Australia's Michael Diamond, after both had posted 145.


    Diamond, who won the trap at Atlanta 1996 and also at his home Games in Sydney four years later, had entered the final as hot favorite after equaling the world record with a perfect 125 in qualifying.


    Diamond missed six clays in the final round to let his lead slip and couldn't recover for a medal.

    They were all shooting typical Flat Ribbed Perazzis. Did not see any of those high ribbed Brooklyn model jobs.

    Those High Ribbed things look like trusses from the Brooklyn Bridge. They also weigh a TON. Tried to shoot them at bunker and could not hit anything. The bird was out of bounds before I could get the beast to move.

    Ahh.... but them Brooklyn bridges are fantastic for seeing that second bird in Double Trap when you don't have to move the gun as fast or far as in Bunker.

    Regarding the comment above about the voice callers: there were several problems with no birds on the call. I can't remember if it was only in one event or in more than that, but there were a few. Seemed to always work out by the second call.

    The system used in the Olympics is integrated with the trap control computer system and is much more sophisticated than the CVR calls used in ATA trap. Voice calls have been mandatory in Olympic trap for 50+ years so they have evolved into a very reliable system. The system used in London was made by Electro Progretti and was used to control all three events. The EP box is capable of throwing something like 30 different events as well as scoring and outputting data to scoreboards, etc.

    Unlike the CVR systems Olympic voice call have no delay for trap. Skeet has a 0-3 Second Delay and Double trap is 0-1 Second. When you call the trap fires whereas the CVR has about a 1/2 second delay. Furthermore the microphone is only on when its the individual shooters turn unlike CVR that are on all the time. You tell the EP Box how many shooters are in the squad and push the start button and it gives those shooter 25 birds and shuts down. The microphones used cost about $200 each and are metal not plastic. A much more reliable system. Moving microphones around is not needed and is in fact frowned on. In comparison the CVR is rather primitive.
