    Ok, I'm confused. Exactly what did Kim win in the Olympics? Skeet? Trap, Bunker Trap? The media gets thing wrong so often about shooting, I am just not knowing what to believe.

    thanks for any help...

    No, she broke the Olympic Record and tied the World Record but yes in Olympic Skeet.

    P.S. Rufus, hit the submit button once. The directions under the submit button read:

    "Please click the submit button only once, it may take a few moments for our system to respond."

    That will prevent the multiple posts.

    I did only hit it once. The screen froze so I shut it off, then I checked back and found two posts. This happened to me over the weekend also, sorry.

    BEAT the previous Olympic record of 93, tied the previous world record of 99 set in a "World" shoot somewhere else. Kim was one of the holders of that previous Olympic record of 93. She was determined to win this year and whipped 'em by eight targets!

    I'm confused on the the number of stations and how many shots are taken at each and is there still the "option" for the 25th shit like in American Skeet?

    See link above.

    There is no "optional" shot.

    Sequence is:high & dbl @ 1,2,&3; high & low single & high double and low double @ 4, Low & double @ 5,6, double @ 7 and high and low 8. No option and a completely different sequence.

    3@1

    3@3
    6@4
    3@5
    3@6
    2@7
    2@8
    =25 Targets are faster and gun at hip until the target emerges after a 0 to 3 second delay aftercalling for the target.
