Over 600 athletes from 86 nations gathered in Lonato del Garda, Italy, to participate in the 2019 Shotgun World Championship, a competition that turned into a real triumph for Fiocchi and its team. 

Our company became the protagonist of the championships thanks to all the athletes who chose the quality of Fiocchi’s ammunitions in their quest for gold. 

The total tally recorded at the end of the competition speaks for itself: Fiocchi’s athletes collected 11 medals, including 5 golds, 4 silver and 2 bronze medals. 

In the men’s Trap competition, it was Mauro De Filippis who claimed the individual silver medal, that came along with the team’s gold pocketed by the Italian Team, formed by three Fiocchi’s athletes: the same Mauro De Filippis, Giovanni Pellielo and Valerio Grazini. 

Another gold medal was secured by Australia’s James Willett, who won the Trap Mixed Team competition, the new Olympic discipline due to debut at the Tokyo Games next year.  

In the Double Trap event, Fiocchi’s team turned out to be almost unbeatable. Antonino Barillà pocketed the world championship title, and his teammate Andrea Vescovi joined him on the podium in bronze position. Italy’s Claudia De Luca and Sofia Miglio won the women’s gold and silver medals, followed on the podium by Finland’s Veromaa Mopsi. In the junior’s category, Jacopo Duprè De Foresta finished in second place, adding another medal to the Fiocchi’s trophy showcase. 

Two more medals came during the Skeet competitions. Tammaro Cassandro won Fiocchi the individual men’s Skeet silver medal, while the 2016 Olympic Champion Gabriele Rossetti triumphed in the Mixed Team event claiming the world title. 

“I am really proud of the results we reached at the World Championship in Lonato. - Said President Stefano Fiocchi. - Once again, the champions chose the high quality and the reliability of our ammunitions to chase the world titles. I would like to thank them, and all the individuals who work with us every day to spread the excellence of Fiocchi’s products on the market.”
