Alliteration, alliteration, don’t ask me about alliteration. Anyway to the matter in hand. Georgios Achilleos from Cyprus managed a reasonable score in Belgrade to win the gold. 149 can’t be bad!!!!! 124 + 25 put him a target up on Benelli, Terras and Sychra all on 148. Benelli shot 20 in the shoot off, Terras, 19 and Sychra 1. Bet he was sick!!!
The competition here was fierce with 122 needed for the final but also, 18 in that shoot off as there were 4 competing for two places. Brovold shot 18, Alrashidi 18 but Mavrommatis and Shomin only 17. Hard going but fine shooting. Wish I’d been there to see it. Just to put thibgs in context as I’ve told you all before, you don’t really have any control of winning. Terras shot 100 straight at one point to shoot 124, 24 in the final and came 3rd. Kinda tough on a boy.
Anyway Cyprus would be jumping with both golds in the skeet. I hope Petr Malek gets a big bonus. He’s doing a marvellous job out there.
