Andri Eleftheriou Finishes 7th in Olympic Skeet Competition:

BEIJING, 14 August 2008 - Twenty-four-year-old Andri Eleftheriou finished 7th in the Skeet competition of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, for the best ever Olympic performance by a Cypriot athlete since 1980 when Cyprus entered the Games as an independent nation. Eleftheriou ranked 7th amongst 19 shooters, hitting 67 out of 75 targets.

Eleftheriou, competing under torrential rain, Thursday morning, hit 22, 23 and 22 targets in each of the three rounds, narrowly missing a berth in the medals round.

Eleftheriou's success has spread joy amongst the delegation of Cyprus at the Beijing Olympics, where her performance is now considered a good omen for the remainder of the Cypriot shooters, who have yet to enter competition at these Olympic Games.

Italy's Chiara Cainero won the gold after a shoot-out amongst the top three finishers, with the Kimberly Rhodes of the USA snatching the silver and Christine Brinker of Germany earning the bronze.
