William Chetcuti won his first Trap competition after just a few weeks of practicing this discipline, now that the Double Trap which brought Chetcuti so much success both locally and internationally, will not be included in the ISSF and the MSSF calendars as from 2018.
On a morning characterised by very strong winds, overcast sky and heavy rain, Chetcuti, under the supervision of Coach Jimmy Bugeja, showed that he is a born winner when he qualified for the final stages and made it right to the top spot of the podium as the weather conditions changed from a stormy morning to a pleasant afternoon.
Brian Galea, who ranked in first place in the qualification rounds, joined Chetcuti on the podium in second place together with Stephen Vella who finished third.
The Finals results were;
1st William Chetcuti 22/25 + 5/5 + 5/5 + 3/5 + 7/10, total score 42/50
2nd Brian Galea 19/25 + 4/5 + 5/5 + 5/5 + 8/10, total score 41/50
3rd Stephen Vella 19/25 + 5/5 + 4/5 + 4/5, total score 32/40
