Brian Galea claimed the Grazio Vella & Bros Trap Trophy at the Qormi Clay Shooting Club in very bad weather conditions.

This Event was organised on two rounds of 25 clay targets each, where the six highest ranked athletes in the qualification rounds advanced to the Final of another five knock out stages from a single shot.

The first stage consists of a total of 25 targets, the second, third and fourth stages consist of 5 targets each while the fifth and last stage consists of 10 targets.

Finalists start from zero, but the results from all stages of the Final are cumulative and after each stage the athlete with the least hit targets is eliminated and is ranked accordingly.

This Sunday’s Final Stages results were;

1st Brian Galea 21/25 + 4/5 + 2/5 + 4/5 + 7/10, total score 38/50

2nd Paul Formosa 19/25 + 4/5 + 3/5 + 4/5 + 7/10, total score 37/50

3rd Jean Pierre Mifsud 18/25 + 3/5 + 2/5 + 3/5, total score 26/40

4th George Mifsud 16/25 + 2/5 + 3/5, total score 21/35

5th Sean Rizzo 15/25 + 2/5, total score 17/30
