Trap Shooting: The Favourites Of The GSSE

NICOSIA, 28 May 2009 Trap shooting athletes Francesco Amici (men) and Daniela Del Din (women) from San Marino are considered the favorites for the gold medals in the Trap Shooting events of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

Competing against Cyprus' Phidias Savvides and Leontios Leontiou, Amici is the conqueror of Trap in the history of the GSSE, having won the most gold medals.

On the other hand, Del Din and her opponents compete for the first time, as the women's category is introduced on the GSSE Programme with the XIII GSSE.

Forty-nine-year-old Amici is considered as one of the best in European shooting, with many major trophies during a successful career. He participated in four Olympic Games (1992, 1996, 2000, 2004), as well as in all major International Shooting Sport Federation events, with some excellent results. He was second at the 1995 World Cup in Cyprus with a score of 147/150 (124+123), sixth at the 2007 European Championship in Granada and third at the 2008 World Cup in Belgrade.

Competing against women's Cypriot champion Georgia Constantinidou, 40-year-old Del Din has been shooting for the past 20 years. The last two of them she has been in great form. She won the bronze at the 2007 World Games with a score of 85/100 (69+18) and the silver at the finals of the World Cup in Belgrade. She was second last year at the World Cup in Suhl, fourth at the finals of the World Cup, in Minsk and 15th at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

This year Del Din won a gold at the first competition of the World Cup in Cairo, with a performance of 89/100 (70+19).
