The trap is a sports shooting competition. Racers use smooth-bore hunting rifles. During the competition, they shoot ceramic darts that the machine shoots at different angles.
Six competitors qualified for the finals. This group included representatives from the Czech Republic and one player each from Mexico, Great Britain, China and Kuwait.
The competition was dictated by the Czechs. In the end, it turned out that both Jerry Liptak and David Kostelecki had 43 points each. It was necessary to spend extra time.
