LARNAKA (CYPRUS): Young Indian shooter Shapath Bharadwaj reached his first ever ISSF World Cup stage Final after finishing fourth following a shoot-off in the men's double trap event, here.

Shapath started on an indifferent note shooting just 24 out of 30 possible hits. He gained in consistency after that and maintained it till the end, shooting a perfect 30 in the second series and 27 in each of the next three series to be one of four shooters to finish with a score of 135.

Russian Vasily Mosin topped the table with a score of 142 to qualify directly while there were two shoot-offs, one to determine second and third positions and the other to determine places 4-7.

Shapath won his shoot-off, getting the better of the much more experienced and former World Cup Gold medalist Italian Davide Gasparini, shooting 22 to Davide’s 21.

Shapath’s teammates Sangram Dahiya and Ankur Mittal finished 17th and 19th respectively with identical scores of 127.
