Italy claimed a one-two in the men's skeet as the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup concluded in New Delhi.

European champion Riccardo Filippelli fired his way to gold at the season opening event in the Indian capital, after hitting 57 out of 60 possible targets in the final.

Filippelli won his second World Cup event by edging team-mate and reigning Olympic champion Gabriele Rossetti.

The 21-year-old Rio 2016 gold medallist registered 53 targets for silver as Australian Paul Adams claimed his first World Cup podium by achieving 45 points for bronze.

"It has been a great competition, I have been shooting in my comfort zone through the whole match, and I had fun during the final," said Filippelli.

"I couldn't have asked for more.

"I am happy to share today’s podium with my team-mate Rossetti. 

"We have known each other for many years, we have been shooting shoulder to shoulder many times.

"My next goal is the European Championship.

"I am preparing to defend the title I won last year. 

"Then, I hope I will be selected for the World Championship from our coach."

New ISSF rules about the number of targets contested mean 14 of the 15 competitions in New Delhi have produced world records, with Filippelli's winning effort now the global best.

Four junior world records were also set in New Delhi.

China finished on top of the medal table with six golds and six silvers, as they dominated both the rifle and pistol disciplines.

Italy finished second with two golds and three silvers after winning both the men's trap and men's skeet.

Australia's two golds and one bronze was enough for third position on the medal table.

Acapulco in Mexico will host the second leg of the ISSF World Cup season between March 17 and 27.
