The leader after the first round was veteran David Clague with a well shot 24, in second place on 22 was Michael Cross with another veteran Dave Corlett in third place on 20.

It was still the same order after the third round with Cross on 66, Clague on 64 and Corlett on 60 followed by Jeff Corkill and Giulio Fabrizio in equal forth place on 56. After the forth round we had Ted Davis finishing in fourth place on 75 with Jeff Corkill taking third place with 77 points but we had a tie for first place between Clague and Cross who both finished after the 100 on 85 so a sudden death shoot of was required to find a winner.

Clague shot first and hit three of his four targets, so did Cross. In the second batch of four Clague scored two, so did Cross but in the final two pairs Clague missed three to Cross’s two so Michael Cross is the new IOM Olympic skeet champion, well done Michael.
