Trap stars in the mix in London

26 April 2012

Current Australian record holder Laetisha Scanlan sits in a tie for seventh after the opening day of the women’s trap at the London World Cup in Woolwich.

Strong winds and heavy rain swept the Royal Artillery Barracks as the 22-year-old Victorian showed good composure to score 23 in the only round contested on Wednesday.

Scanlan sits one target clear of fellow Australian Suzy Balogh (Sydney, NSW) who also shot strongly throughout her round.

The 2004 Athens Olympic Games gold medallist compiled 22 targets and is equal 16th, while the third Australian in the field, Catherine Skinner (Mansfield, VIC), is only two targets further back on a score of 20.

All three Australians remain well placed ahead of the final two rounds tomorrow (April 26) before the top six contest the final later in the afternoon.

In the men’s trap 2004 Athens Olympic Games bronze medallist Adam Vella (Keilor, VIC) is tied with Josh Collard (Port Melbourne, VIC) on 45 targets after two rounds.
 
Vella, who is on track to reach his second Olympic Games later this year, shot rounds of 22 and 23, which were matched by 19-year-old Collard, who is considered a bright prospect for the future.

Five-time Olympian Michael Diamond (Gold Coast, QLD) is two targets further back on 43 after recording rounds of 21 and 22 in the testing conditions.

Diamond, Vella and Collard will each shoot one round on Thursday, before they complete their final two rounds on Friday.
