Women’s Skeet Shooting World Cup Final

Share This:

It was a strong showing from all three of the American competitors in Women’s Skeet as the U.S. took gold, bronze and fourth today at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Final in New Delhi, India.

Kim Rhode (El Monte, California) successfully defended her World Cup Final title in world-class fashion, equaling the world record of 56/60 targets in the Final. Current Olympic Champion, Diana Bacosi of Italy, would also tie Rhode’s score on her last target of the match. The gold medal was decided 22 targets later in a shootoff, with Rhode claiming her second World Cup Final title in a row. Today’s win marks Rhode’s third World Cup Final title in her career.

“A lot of things happened during this Final, but I think that’s typical with any event,” Rhode told the ISSF. “You just roll with the punches and hope for the best outcome… And this is the best outcome you can have! I couldn’t be happier!”

Reigning World Champion Dania Vizzi (Odessa, Florida) hit 44/50 targets to claim the bronze medal.

Caitlin Connor (Winnfield, Louisiana) missed two targets at a crucial stage in the competition to be eliminated in fourth place. Connor also finished fourth in her other World Cup Finals appearances in 2012 and 2009.
