KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica's Sean Clacken outshot a big field to win C Class in the 20 gauge category, after shooting a perfect 100 targets in the World Skeet Championships which was held recently in San Antonio, Texas.

Clacken also won the Sub Sub-Senior category (40-49 years) and is now in the top thirty shooters overall in the Championships, a news release from JCK Consulting Group said.

JCK said that Clacken was the only Jamaican competitor at the National Skeet Shooting Association (NASSA) event, which was the largest skeet shooting event, featuring over 700 gunners from all over the world competing in various classes.

The agency added that 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. 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," Clacken was quoted as saying.

Noting that Skeet used to be a popular form of shooting in the Jamaica but now has less events, JCK said that did not deter Clacken from competing and doing well in the event.

"I think everything just came together, just the right time, my focus was very good that day. I was concentrating and it's really a mental game because in the game of skeet if you miss one bird you are out of it. The focus and everything just came together the one day," Clacken said.

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