The 2006 World Champion was Canadian Sue Nattrass, who was competing in her sixth Olympic Games, first appearing in 1976 when trap shooting was a mixed event. She competed in Beijing but placed 11th in qualifying and did not make the final. Two other favorites, China’s Liu Yingzi and San Marino’s Daniela Del Din, failed to make the final round, placing 12th and 15th, respectively. The qualifying leader was Zuzana Štefečeková (SVK), who was also the world record holder. She was tied at 70 targets with Finland’s Satu Mäkelä-Nummela. In the final Mäkelä-Nummela hit 21 of 25 targets to win the gold medal in a big upset, with Štefečeková dropping back to the silver.
