Zuzana Štefečeková became the fifth Slovak athlete to win a medal at the Summer Olympic Games in London after she finished second in the women’s trap shooting competition, the TASR newswire reported on August 4.

“I knew that everything would be fine if I made it to the final... My relatives were there, and I did not want to let them down,” said Štefečeková, as quoted by TASR. “I did not give up the fight for gold ahead of the final, but Rossi was in a class of her own.”

Štefečeková recorded a total of 93 points after she had beaten Delphine Reau from France and Alessandra Perilli from San Marino in a three-way shoot-off.

The gold medal went to Italian Jessica Rossi who set a new world record with 99 points, missing only one of 100 shots in the qualifying rounds and the finals.
