Italy's Jessica Rossi has smashed the world record as she claimed gold in the women's trap shooting this afternoon.

The 20-year-old policewoman from Cento hit 99 of her 100 clay targets over three rounds of qualifying and in a one-sided final. She obliterated the previous record of 96, which has stood since 2006, to win by six points. And it would have been a perfect 100 but for a miss with her 92nd shot. Three competitors were tied on 93 and went into a shoot-off to determine the rest of the medals. Slovakia eventually took silver ahead of France.
