Maltese shooter Marlon Attard produced an outstanding performance at the European Shooting Championships when he secured the silver medal in the skeet event held in Osijek, Croatia.
Attard was one of three Maltese skeet shooters in the competition with the other being GSSE 2023 gold medallist Clive Farrugia and Liam Sciberras.
Gozitan shooter Attard was on hot form right from the outset as he missed just one clay from the opening three qualifying rounds to hit 74 from 75 clays.
That impressive performance earned him a place into the final.
On the other hand, Liam Sciberras hit 69 from 75 while Clive Farrugia produced a solid performance to amass 71 points from 75 but still was not enough from a place in the final.
Attard maintained his hot-scoring form into the final where from opening four rounds of competition he missed just four clays to ensure he battled for the gold medal with Greek shooter Charalambos Chalkiadakis.
In the final, Chalkiadakis was in impeccable mood as hit all the clays to secure the gold medal with a total score of 60.
Attard was second on 54 points while Tammaro Cassandro, of Italy, took the bronze medal with 45.
No doubt, this result will be ahuge injection of confidence for Attard as he continues to battle for a qualification spot for next year’s Olympic Games in Paris.
