English shooter Carl Bloxham participated on January 5th in the well know English Sporting 100 competition, held at the EJ Churchill Shooting Ground in High Wycome(GBR).

The Fiocchi shooter closed with an amazing score of 100 hits, not missing any target and stating "I shot my only 100-out-of-100 well over thirty years ago, so it's good to know I can still do it!"


Fiocchi British shooter Michael Wixey of Wales triumphed in the Trap Men event at the 2017 Cyprus Grand Prix, that took place in Larnaka (CYP) from February 7th to February 13th.

Wixey hit 117 targets in the qualification round, wrestling through a four-way shoot-off and entering the final after four more clays.

There, with the weather turning for the worst, the Welsh shooter and the other final participants competed under the new ISSF rules, with the first elimination coming after 25 targets.

With two shooters left on the line and Sweden's Andreas Norlen holding a 1-point lead on Wixey, the Fiocchi athlete shot an almost perfect final series, finishing with 41 target hits and securing the Gold medal

"I've attended the Cyprus GP many times over the years and it's great to have finally won this prestigious event!" Said Wixey.

Julie, Chair of the Disabled Shooting Group, worked tirelessly for years to promote the Paralympic Clay Target Shooting, receiving a massive boost after the first IPC World Cup competition has been made official.
