There was no stopping the top three Maltese Airgun Shooters from achieving excellent scores in the 8th shooting competition in Air-Rifle and Air-Pistol in Bidnija yesterday. William Vella shot an excellent 587/600 to win the air-rifle event in style achieving a new record score for Malta in this Olympic shooting event. Marianna Kisvardai who also achieved an excellent score of 576/600 & 384/400 to also break the Maltese record for the womens Air-Rifle event. Lawrence Darmanin placed 3rd with a score of 536/400.

Meanwhile in the Air-Pistol event, Eleanor Bezzina continued with her progress in achieving another Maltese record score in the Women’s Air-Pistol event with an undisputable 375/400 & 564/600 to place ahead of Ray Cacciattolo (547/600), Emmanuel Grech (508/600 and a personal best), Martin Grech (480/600) and Josette Calleja (470/600 & 313/400 in the women’s event).

MARPSC and MSSF are very happy with these results and show that these athletes are peaking well in their preparation for the oncoming GSSE in Liechtenstein in a couple of months time.
