The quotas were decided today in women’s skeet at the second 2019 Shotgun World Cup. In terms of Olympic qualification, the two highest ranked eligible athletes qualified their nation to the Olympics. The Shotgun World Cup event is currently being held in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates from April 5th to April 16th 2019.

The qualification round was topped by the 2018 World Champion Caitlin Connor of the United States whom successfully hit 120 out of 125 targets.

The final was won by the United States’ Kimberley Rhode whom edged out Chile’s Francisca Crovetto by one shot. The bronze medal was won by Eleftheriou.
