Posted: Updated:

Former West Virginia University
shooter Nicco Campriani won the men's rifle 3 position on April 28, at
the London International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup, at
the Royal Artillery Barracks, in Woolwich, London.

       Campriani, the 2011 NCAA air rifle champion and a National Rifle
Association first team All-American, won his first ISSF medal in the
event with a score of 1278.2. The Florence, Italy, native's open relay
score of 1179 (399 prone, 391 standing, 389 kneeling) was six shots
better than his closest competitor. He solidified his win with a 99.2
showing in the finals.

       Mountaineer coach Jon Hammond, shooting for Great Britain, just
missed the event finals, as he shot 1165 and fell one shot short of
qualifying. The Aberdeen, Scotland, native shot a perfect 400 prone, 374
standing and 391 kneeling.

       Junior All-American Petra Zublasing earned a 22nd-place finish
in the women's rifle 3 position on April 26. The Appiano, Italy,
native shot 194 prone, 188 standing and 191 kneeling for a 573 total.

       Next up on the international schedule is the Milan ISSF World
Cup. The event will open on May 13 in Milan, Italy, with the first
competition set for May 15.
