Officially referred to only as trap, and also known in the United States as international trap, bunker trap, trench or international clay pigeon, the single-target Olympic trap shooting event has a history over a hundred years old. It is considered more difficult than most other trap versions in that the distance to the targets and the speed with which they are thrown are both greater.
Until 1991, the Olympic trap event was open to both men and women. In 1996, it was open to men only, and from 2000 men and women have had separate competitions.
The course of fire is 125 targets in the qualification round for men and 75 for women, and 25 additional targets in the final round for the six best shooters. In 2005, the final rules were changed so that only one shot can now be taken at each target, as opposed to two in the qualification round.
