John Joss 6th in R3 both before and after final
Yesterday John Joss (AMU) had a frustrating day in R6 (50m Prone Rifle Mixed), finishing just out of the final in 10th place. Scores were quite low in the tricky wind conditions.
Today, OTC Resident Mike Tagliapietra shot a fine score of 569 in the P3 (25m Sport Pistol Mixed) event today, just off the Americas Record he holds at 572 and the high score for the day of 573.
After the first part of the final he was in a 3 way tie for third and survived that shoot-off to get to the bronze medal final.
In that final he defeated Frank Heitmeyer (GER) to win the Bronze medal.
Mike still has P5, MFP/P4 and MAP/P1 later this week.
Tomorrow is our busiest day with US athletes competing in R3, P5, MFP and R4.
