Ian O'Sullivan has beaten all comers in the Junior Men’s Trap event at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships.

The 18-year-old beat off competition from 34 different countries to take the top spot on the podium in the clay pigeon shooting event in Granada.

“It was hard, but I managed to get through,” the teenager from Rathkeale, Co Limerick said.

“I will tell them [my Irish friends] that I'm the World Champion. I don't know if they will believe me!”

“Hopefully we can keep it going."
