Athletes use a shotgun to hit 'clays' that are propelled into the air from machines on the ground. Athletes strive to make as many 'hits' (when a clay is broken) as possible. Through the competition, athletes shoot from across five central positions on the range. Athletes shoot at 125 clays in the qualification round.
