Jamaica's Sean Clacken shot a perfect 100 targets to win the C Class in the 20-gauge category at the  National Skeet Shooting Association (NASSA) World Skeet Championships recently in San Antonio, Texas.  

Clarken, the only Jamaican competitor, also won the Sub Sub-Senior category (40-49 years) and his result placed him in the top 30 shooters overall in the history of the 20-gauge competition.

Clacken also posted creditable scores such as 131 out of 150 in the 12-gauge, 93 out of 100 in the 28-gauge and 91 out of 100 in the 410-gauge.  

"I was able to shoot 100 out of 100 in the 20-gauge tournament and win the C Class and coming in the top 30 overall in the 20 gauge competition.  The last time I went was 27 years ago so it was a very fun experience going back and being able to achieve the goal that I wanted to achieve, which was to win one of the gauges so I am very excited," Clacken said.

He further stated that "although I wasn't planning on going again I think that I am going to be doing some more training to see if I can participate next year." 

President of the Jamaica Skeet Club, Jordan Samuda said he was pleased with Clacken's performance at the NASSA event.
