    The Women's Trap Qualification rounds will start at 9:00 am Beijing Time (Monday, August 11th)/8:00 pm CST (Sunday, August 10th).


    Information including squad lists, individual information on each shooter, schemes being used, squad rotation, live results, and final results can be found here:


    http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/ENG/INF/SH/RPT/SHW401901.shtml


    The links for the "intermediate results" and "results" will be active once the first scores are posted at approximately 8:40 pm CST. Each round takes about 25 minutes to complete, so new scores will be posted approximately every 30 minutes. If you leave the "intermediate results" or "results" webpage open, it will automatically refresh after 15 seconds -- You will get the scores as they go up.


    There are scheduled 1 hour breaks in between the flights/rounds of shooting. So the live results will have 1 hour breaks between some of the updates. Scores should be posted twice in the first hour, then a one hour break, twice in the third hour, a one hour break, twice in the fifth hour, and then the final will start 2.5 hours later. The information for squads, starting traps, schemes being used and the time schedule can be found here:


    http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/ENG/INF/SH/C51J/SHW401900.shtml#SHW401901


    In regards to the final:


    The NBC website does not state the women's final will be broadcasted live on the internet, but it didn't say that about the men's final either. So I'm going to be safe and guess that it will be. Don't be mad if its not.


    The women's final is scheduled to start at 3:00 pm Beijing time/2:00 am CST. If the final will be broadcasted, it will show up on the NBC website around 2:00 am CST (maybe slightly later). On the shooting homepage, there will be a link right at the top of the page, above the pictures in the rotating news release. It will say in red letters "LIVE: Watch the Women's Trap Final NOW," just click on that and a new window will load so you can watch the final live. The shooting homepage can be found here:


    http://www.nbcolympics.com/shooting/index.html


    In order to watch the final you do have to download Microsoft Silverlight. If you plan on watching the final live tonight, I would download the program now so you can start watching right away and not miss anything. To do that, just watch ANY of the videos on the www.nbcolympics.com website. The download will start when you click on any of the videos.


    Watch live and cheer for the USA!

    My last post was updated after I found out there was going to be scheduled breaks...


    Also, MSNBC just said there was going to be live streaming coverage of shooting on NBCOlympics.com tonight...So that will include the Women's Trap Final.

    Reminder that if you want to watch it live on your computer, in addition to silverlight, your operating system has to be Microsoft Vista Home Premium or Vista Ultimate. Thank you NBC.

    Lets see: 2AM Central is 3AM East and midnight on the left coast.

    And Canada's Susan Nattress is now in her 6th Olympics. A tough record to beat!

    Bill (Bunker guy) -- not true about Vista. I'm running XP/Firefox, installed Silverlight for Firefox last night and watched the Men's Trap event with no problems whatsoever. I did this at 1:00 a.m. this morning.

    Looks to be showing around midnight here...another late night in this house!

    Women's prelmin's are going on now (since 6 pm PDT). I can't seem to get it live online. Am I missing something or are they not live-streaming the qualifications?

    Are you actually watching this or just getting results? I can get the results, but can't watch them.

    The qualification round is not live on video. They only stream the scores as they come in.


    The final round will be streamed live on video.

    Oh thank you -- I thought I was losing my mind! I'll be up at midnight, hoping to catch the finals.

    Thanks again...

    On the shooting site NBC has posted a video replay of the men's Olympic final trapshooting event. Awesome coverage...better late than never!

    Rarely was I able to even see the clay before the shot...and a "teabag" is taped to the clay to ensure breaks are visible to the judges...very different than our ATA events...

    The guns are interesting...all are O/U's, most all seem to be Perazzi's, flat ribs, not much in the way of adjustable combs or stocks; the guns look more like sporting clays guns that what I am used to seeing on the trap line...

    interesting...and well worth watching.

    bluedsteel,

    It was much better when they aired it on TV this afternoon. You could see the targets clearly.

    The clarity on TV today was so good, in fact, on the slow-motion closeups of the targets, you could see little white "bursts" that appeared to me to be individual pellets hitting raindrops.

    And I don't even have HDTV.

    Just posted, Corey finished the third round at 69.

    Two ahead of her with 70's, and two tied with her at 69.

    Susan Natrass had an 18 in her third round and finished with a 63.
