Basically, they shoot doubles at station 4 until somebody misses. McGrath hit both of his. The other guy whiffed one on his first pair.

Not sure how they break ties for the competitors who don't make the final round, but I think they look at the score of the last round you shot, and if that's the same, they go to the previous round, etc.

Unless you are top 3, all ties are broken by the count back rule. (top 4 if the tie is for 3rd place) Used to be shoot-off for ties in the top 6 during a final, but that changed this year. Skeet ties are broken by doubles at Station 4. I haven't seen the final, but in this situation it looks like one shooter missed on the pair and the other one got both targets. This is not a true "miss and out". If both shooters had missed one target, it would still be a tie and another round of targets would be thrown. I have to check my rule book, but I think they alternate high/low and low/high on the order for each round.

Way to go, shooters! They are letting everyone around the world know that we have good shots here in the U.S.

Much more useful than ice skating...

(I'm not knocking ice skating (I ice skate), but you can't defend a country trying to kick 'em off with blades...especially in the summer. Although ninja ice skating would be pretty cool.
