When talking about the European tour the Australian Shotgun Team has been on, Scanlan said “Our European tour is coming to an end, it’s almost been 7 weeks away, I’ve learnt some really valuable lessons throughout this journey and I’m really lucky and fortunate to have so many competitions within that 7 weeks and I’m really happy to finish off in a world cup medalling.”

The ISSF World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan marks the end of a 7-week international campaign for the Australian Shotgun Team, with Trap Mixed Teams and Trap Team events still to come this week.
