What we teach us the shooting champion Giovanni Pellielo

Giovanni Pellielo, Italian, 25 years of shooting, he won three world championships in Olympic trap and three Olympic medals to mention only the most important results. With this story he could have quit and started another career, becoming the personal coach of some young talent on which to use his competences. But he has not chosen this path. At London he has not entered into the final, certainly his performance was positive with 121 plates hit on 125 but needless to enter into the final. In the rarefied world of the shooting champions started to diffuse the idea that Pellielo was over, others were now the winners. Pellielo, like Tiger Woods and Federica Pellegrini before him,  did not accept this idea and came back to get ready. The results, he won the first major national competition with 124 on 125 targets and at the next session of the World Cup he improved of 1 more target, with the score 125 of 125 taken: world record. Now he can feel comfortable that no one thinks he is finished. Toughness, confidence and pride. Nobody becomes champion for nothing!

Olimpic trap was really cruel

The trap competition,  shooting, it was really cruel. The Croatian Cernogoraz won the gold medal but it was entered last in the final with 122 out of 125 target. Giovanni Pellielo, however, with one plate less, 121 out of 125, has been out of the final, finishing in seventh place. Michael Diamond had taken all the 125 plates equaling the world record, in the final five plates was missed and he was ranked only fourth.  Fabbrizi and Cernogoraz  have concluded with the same score the final, so they made a shotoff that lasted 6 plates, the sixth the Italian missed the target and finished in second place. In this sport the difference between the joy of victory and the sadness of defeat has really done nothing. The revenge for those who will be in four years.
