    After the first round of Men's Trap. the U.S. is not doing so well.

    It looks like there were 5 25 Straights but the U.S. team isn't among them.

    The U.S., Scores are:
    GRAZIOLI Dominic 23 That would be a tie for 19th place
    ERICKSON Bret 20 Tie for 32nd place

    There were 35 shooters with scores list on the Olympic site.

    Both moved up after the second round. As of now, Dominic is tied with five others for the second highest score.

    The qualification round is done now.

    Alexey Alipov RUS 121 (23 24 25 25 24)


    David Kostelecky CZE 121 (24 24 25 24 24)


    Erminio Frasca ITA 120 (23 24 25 24 24)


    Giovanni Pellielo ITA 120 (25 25 23 24 23)


    Michael Diamond AUS 119 (25 23 24 24 23 +3 in the shoot off)


    Josip Glasnovic CRO 119 (25 23 24 25 22 +3 in the shoot off)


    Karsten Bindrich from Germany also shot a 119 (24 23 24 25 23 +2 in the shoot off), dropping his last 2 out his final round for a 23. In the shoot off to get into the final, Glasnovic shot first, Diamond second and Bindrich drew the high pressure position.


    The final will start at 3:00 pm Beijing time (2:00 am CST). It will air on MSNBC sometime between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on Sunday.


    If anyone is awake at 2:00 am CST, and half ways interested in looking, there is a website updated live after the rounds are over. All the athletes will be introduced, test firing next, and then the round will start. The website should have the final results around 2:45 am CST.

    It's not surprising. The rest of the world shoots under ISU and ISSF rules which are similar to Olympic shooting rules. In the USA for the most part we use our own rules in the shooting sports. This puts us at a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to the big international events which are run under the international rules. HMB

    From my perspective shooting interanational sports in the U.S. is the availblity of facilites and the proper AMMO. I have shot both bunker trap and international skeet really wish the Marine Corps had allowed me to try out back in the late 80's when ammo, targets, and money to travel were avaialble.

    Forgive my ignorance, but are they shooting from 27 yds? Also, why do their targets smoke so much is it the brand of target they use?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Ken,

    I believe they shoot from 15 meters. A foot or so more than 16 yards.

    For the final round, the top 6 shooters shoot at special targets with packets of powder attached, hence the big puff of orange dust when they break one. Easier for the judges to see, and luckily, the TV viewers.
