Qatar's Al Athba

Osijek, Croatia, 10 October 2022 - Qatar's Rashid Al-Athba qualified to Paris 2024 Olympics after claiming the bronze medal of men’s skeet event at ISSF World Championship Shotgun 2022 in Osijek, Croatia on Sunday. 

A perfect medal round saw Egypt's Azmy Mehelba score 40 out of 40 to claim the skeet shooting world title. 

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Vincent Hancock missed just one target midway through the medal match so could do nothing to prevent Mehelba from claiming a perfect hit in the final round. 

Third placed Rashid Al-Athba of Qatar rounded out the podium.

Sweden's Stefan Nilsson finished fourth but claimed a Paris 2024 quota place for his nation alongside Mehelba, Hancock and Al-Athba for Egypt, USA, and Qatar, respectively.
