Skeet W Slovakias Bartekova back on Cairos podium

The 24-year older Slovakian shooter Danka BARTEKOVA won todays Skeet Women event at the ISSF shotgun World Cup in Cairo, Egypt. Behind her, Thailand Sutiya Jiewchaloemmit won Silver in spite of equalling the world record in the qualifications.
The Slovakian athlete Danka Bartekova shot the second Gold medal of her international career with an excellent score of 97 hits, by shooting-off Thailands Sutiya JIEWCHALOEMMIT 2 to 1 hit.
Bartekova had walked into the final match in third place, with a qualification score of 73 hits, and climbed the scoreboard to the highest step of the podium with a perfect final of 25 hits.
This is not the first time Bartekova shoots an award in Cairo This must my lucky city! I had won my first World Cup Gold here in Cairo, in 2006, shooting at old range, and a Silver medal at the 2001 World Championships, as junior shooter! This new range is beautiful, its a great place to compete.
The Slovakian athlete had walked into the Games as one of the favourites, but once in Beijing she struggled and could not find her way to the medal match. That was a completely new situation for me, stressing me quite a bit. This is a new start so great to be back on Cairos podium!
I met some of the best Skeet shooter of the world in todays final. It has not been easy, Ive only been thinking about my targetsI will now come to compete at the ISSF World Cup Stages in Munich and San Marino, well see how tables will turn there added the Slovakian athlete.
Todays Silver medallist Sutiya Jiewchaloemmit had qualified this morning thorough an outstanding qualification series, where she had equalled the current World Record of 74 hits (set at the 2005 ISSF World Cup in Belgrade by Elena Little, GBR, and equalled seven times since then). The Thai shooter struggled with the light during the final match, and dropped two determinant clays in the first part of the round finishing in the shoot-off with Slovakias Bartekova.
Beijings Olympic Champion Chiara CAINERO of Italy did not play her best game today. The 31-year old shooter, current #1 in the world raking, started the final with a qualification score of 73 targets, only one target behind qualifications leader Jiewchaloemmit.
Later on, during the final match, Cainero struggled on station 4, dropping two clays, and on stations five and eight, where she lost two more determinants targets. Beijings champion closed the match in fourth place, outdoing world #3 Andri ELEFTHEROU of Cyprus in a shoot-off 6 to 5 targets.
Bronze went to USAs Connie SMOTEK, an expert ISSF World Cup multi-medallist coming form Texas, who climbed the scoreboard form the fifth to the third place, stepping upon the podium with a total score of 95 hits (70+25).
I am very happy with the way that I shot today, and with the Bronze medal! This is the only world cup where I am competing this year. Smotek said right after the final round I really loved competing in this shooting range! the American shooter added right before stepping on the podium.
USAs team great performance was highlighted alos by the 18-year old shooter Caitlin CONNOR. The young shooter had never participated in an ISSF competition before, and debuted on Cairos ranges by making into the six-athlete final through a shoot-off and by getting a sixth place with a total of 90 hits (70+20).
The Skeet Men final will take place tomorrow, scheduled at 2 PM Cairo Time (GMT+3).
After the first competition day, Ukraines Mikola MILCHEV is leading the provisory rank with a full score of 75 hits out of 75 targets. Behind him, Olympic Champion Ennio FALCO of Italy follows with 74 hits, and the home player, Egypt Franco DONATO is not that far, with 73 hits.
The last qualification rounds and the final match are announced to be tough.
