The Shotgun international season of the Fiocchi Team started with two silver medals.

In the first stage of the ISSF World Cup, celebrated from the 4th to the 13th of March in Nicosia (CYP), Alessandra Perilli from San Marino and Federico Gil from Argentine got on the second step of the podium, respectively in Trap and Skeet.

In the Trap race, Alessandra Perilli was the star of a great final, tarnished by two mistakes in the last shooting session that costed her the gold medal, won by Sandra Bernal from Poland for only one target. Behind them, Fatima Galvez from Spain.

In the Skeet race, Federico Gil has demonstrated to be in great shape since the qualification, where he missed only one target, ending with a wonderful 124/125. The final was a real battle with Stefan Nilsson from Sweden, who managed to win for just one target: 58 to 57. Behind them, Azmy Mehelba from Egypt.

"Congratulations to Alessandra and Federico for these beautiful silver medals - commented President Stefano Fiocchi - Having started the season in this way bodes well for all our athletes that will take part in the competitions of the next months, in the World Cup but above all at the Tokyo Olympics ".
