Ahrens dominates at Trap season trials

Ahrens dominates at Trap season trials

Barely two months before the start of the 31st Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Namibia’s qualified Olympic Trapshooter Gaby Ahrens won the third national trials in spectacular fashion over the weekend in Windhoek.
The current African Champion was in a class of her own during the tournament on the military base Luiperdsvalley south of the capital.
Together with Johan Venter, Ahrens hit 107 targets during qualification to qualify for the semi-finals where she met 6 other shooters who qualified for the final. Cool and collected, Ahrens hit a near perfect 13/15 clay targets to secure her place in the final where she faced an equally impressive Venter, who hit 13/15 to qualify for the Gold Medal Match.
The Commonwealth bronze-medallist of 2010, brimming with confidence after her success in the morning shoot, then made light work of Venter in the battle for the first spot, being on target 13 times. Venter hit 11 of possible 15 targets securing the Silver Medal.
The third place was taken by upcoming young shooter, Oliver Hoffmann.
The event was great preparation for Ahrens ahead of her travels South Africa’s National Championships this week and the World Cup in San Marino the week after as her Road to Rio starts to take promising shape.
Ahead of the trails, the Clay Target Shooting Association of Namibia (CTSA) also took the opportunity to hand a contribution to Ahrens in recognition of her achievements and supporting her in her quest to excel at the Olympic Games. She very thankfully received N$11 000 from her association.
