COLORADO SPRINGS- USA Shooting announced today that eight elite American shotgun athletes have won coveted invitations to the 2002 ISSF World Cup Final for trap, double trap and skeet in Lonato, Italy. Scheduled for October 17th to 23rd, the ISSF World Cup Final is the climax of the world cup season, and only a very select list athletes who have medaled in major international competition during 2002 are invited to compete.<br><br>Representing the USA in Lonato will be Dominic Grazioli of San Antonio, Texas; Lance Bade of Vancouver, Washington; Glenn Eller of Houston, Texas; Todd Graves of Laurel, Mississippi; Shawn Dulohery of Lee?s Summit, Missouri; Bill Keever of Rutherford, North Carolina; Amanda Dorman of Peyton, Colorado; and Kim Rhode of El Monte, California.<br><br>Media releases covering the outcome of each event in Lonato will be available to all media outlets by e-mail upon request, and will be posted on both the USA Shooting website and at www.usocpressbox.org .<br><br>Background Information<br><br>International or Olympic-style trap differs from the more familiar American trap format in that the international clay targets are thrown at much higher speeds, over much wider angles and to much greater distances than in the domestic event. International rules also limit the amount of shot each shell may hold to just 24 grams, or about 7/8ths of an ounce of pellets, compared to the typical 1-1/8th ounce target loads more familiar to American shooters. Under international trap rules, the clay targets are released instantly upon call from one of up to 15 different throwing machines, and the shooter is allowed one or two shots at each target in trap, but only one shot at each of the two targets in double trap.<br><br>International Skeet is similar to the domestic game, except that the shooter starts with the gunstock at hip level as the target is called for, the target is released with a random zero-to-three-second delay after the call, and there are more pairs of targets thrown during each round. International trap has been a part of the modern Olympic program since 1900, with skeet added in 1968 and double trap added in 1996.<br><br>USA Shooting is recognized by the US Olympic Committee (USOC) and the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) as the national governing body for the Olympic and international shooting sports in the United States. International shooting includes more than two-dozen different events for both men and women in four different disciplines; pistol rifle, shotgun and running target. 17 of these events are currently part of the Olympic shooting sports program. USA Shooting trains and selects the USA Shooting Team, which represents the United States throughout the year in numerous major international competitions worldwide including the Olympic Games, World Championships, Pan American Games, Championships of the Americas and at ISSF World Cups.

Hey Pilkguns,<br>Thanks for keeping us updated. I also was glad you posted about the clay shoot in China. I found that one particularly interesting. You are now our official "Clay Shooting News" guy.<br>Let me know if you are up to the challenge and I'll even change your title.<br>I think we could do better in international tournments if more of the International Style ranges were available. I think the only one in Texas is at the shooting center in San Antonio. Are they more prevalent where you live?<br>thanks,<br>Jay Gentry<br>Shotgunworld.com <p><a href="http://www.shotgunworld.com">Shotgunworld.com</a></p><i></i>
