Christoforou Dethrones Andreou

NICOSIA, 3 June 2009 - Cypriot shooter Kyriacos Christoforou was the big winner in the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe skeet event after bringing his fellow countryman Antonis Andreouís reign in the competition to an end.

Third place and the bronze went to Maltaís Clive Farrugia.

Andreou had in the past won a remarkable five gold medals in five consecutive GSSE competitions but he was undone this time around as Christoforou emerged victorious to leave him in second with the silver medal for a change. The two athletes had previously gone head-to-head at the 1995 GSSE in Luxembourg in an event which saw Andreou celebrating the gold and Christoforou in second place.

It was a tightly-fought contest between the two Cypriots with both Andreou (23+24+24+24+24) and Christoforou (24+24+24+25+22) tied in first place with a total of 119 hits from 125 attempts whilst Farrugia scored 112/125.

But it was Christoforou who held his nerve in the final to take the gold with a rampant display that saw him score a perfect 25/25, two better than second place Andreou and third place Farrugia.
