Top Filipino shooter Brian Rosario ended his Olympic campaign on Tuesday after shooting identical scores of 22 in the fourth and fifth round of qualifiers in the men’s skeet shooting competition.
His performance gave him an aggregate of 110, giving him a tie for 30th and 31st places with Guillermo Torres of Cuba.
The field of 36 competitors was led by defending champion Vincent Hancock of the United States, who set a new Olympic record with 123. Rounding out the finalists are Denmark’s Anders Golding (122), Russia’s Valeriy Shomin (121), Qatar’s Nasser Al-Attiya (121), Italy’s Luigi Lodde (120), and Czech Republic’s Jan Sychra (120).
Rosario was granted a wildcard sport to the competition by the International Shooting Sport Federation last May.
