Today's results of Brian Galea both in the qualification rounds 49/50 and in the final stages 48/50 from a single shot should give him good motivation since this Tuesday he will be leaving together with the Maltese Trap Team to compete at the ISSF World Cup 2019 - Lahti, Finland.

On the other hand, another good result of 45/50 from a single shot in final stages, this time from Nico Sciberras should also give confidence to the young athlete as he is preparing for the European Championship that will be held next month in Italy.

The MSSF Shotgun Programme continues on Saturday 17 and on Sunday 18 August 2019 at the Southern Shooting Club with the Santa Marija Grand Prix.
