Sport

After a long wait, we are finally here. Just as shooting in Cairo last week, skeet shooting can also inaugurate its 2022 international season with the first stage of the World Cup, which for the occasion will be held at the Nicosia.

The Cypriot platforms will therefore be the scene of the first post-Olympic showdown or almost, excluding the President’s Cup in autumn 2021: in fact, it starts from here.

Trap and skeet in the now usual individual competitions, Mixed Team competitions, with the second specialty that will inevitably be more observed because it will have mixed competition on the agenda at the Paris 2024 Games, and team competitions.

It’s Italy? After the “discreet” disappointment in Tokyo, with only one medal brought home, thanks to the silver taken by Diana Bacosi, the blue group was the protagonist of an important technical revolution, even if the actors on the platform, at least for the moment , however, remain those who, it should not be forgotten , in the not too distant past have made the name of the Bel Paese great in the world.

It is time to assemble the rifles, take them up and get back into the firing and call position, because from tomorrow it is serious.

A new balance must be sought and found from all points of view, with the aim of breaking clay pigeons, also because the approach to top-notch events, such as European and World Championships, begins with finding an immediate feeling with the weapon and with targets.
