Bozhidar Dimitrov made it three medals from three in shooting disciplines at the Small Nations Games in San Marino when he placed third in the skeet competition in Serravalle.

The Bulgarian-born shooter showed his mental prowess in the final when he amassed 40 points to finish only behind to Cyprus shooter Andreas Chasikos and Christian Costa, of San Marino.

Clive Farrugia, the other Maltese shooter in competition, placed fifth overall.

Earlier in the day, Farrugia and Dimitrov had eased into the final.

Farrugia, who started the day in third place, safely retained his position after the final two qualifying rounds when posting scores of 23 and 22 to finish with 112 clays, five adrift of Georgios Achilleos and four behind Andreas Chasikos.

On the other hand, Dimitrov forced his way into the top six places with a clinical performance which saw him fire a straight of 25 and 23 for an aggregate score of 110 that pushed him just behind his team-mate in fourth place.
