Spain achieves its first ever trap mixed team gold at Tokyo Olympic Games 2020! Alberto Fernandez Muñoz, the shooter relying on our chokes, who paired off with Fátima Gálvez, managed to climb onto the trap mixed team podium top step.
What a heart-pounding final at the Asaka Shooting Range! After passing the qualification round having an equal score with many other teams the Spanish fellow athletes were able to rise to the lead hitting 99 targets out of 100 thus reaching the medal match against the San Marino opponents at their best. The round awarding the title resulted in a thrilling head-to-head between the two national teams: successful shots along with a few slip-ups on both sides made it exciting until the last clay pigeon! It’s no small feat to wear a gold medal around your neck, however the experience gained by Alberto (24/25) and Fátima (17/25) over time allowed them to win the challenge and clinch the title of Olympic champions!
Our warmest compliments also to the pair of San Marino, whose silver medal will remain etched in our memories, as well as to the Americans Madelynn Ann Bernau and Brian Burrows, who placed third defeating Slovakia which took to the field our Erik Varga with his teammate Zuzana Rehak Stefecekova.
One more accomplishment for Alberto Fernandez Muñoz in this 2021, attained after his seventh title of Spain Trapshooting National Champion, and obviously also for Gemini sports crew which reaches the summit of the world yet again. Heartfelt congratulations to you Alberto, we are proud to be by your side and that you belong to our family!
