Israel's prospects of a shooting medal at the 2008 Olympics received a boost on Saturday when 41-year-old Guy Starik finished in third place at the ISSF World Cup Final in Granada, Spain. The Israeli was second after the qualifying round, collecting 598 of a possible 600 points. Starik added 103 points to his total in the final and dropped to third place, 0.8 points behind the silver medal winner. The bronze medal virtually secures Starik's place at the Beijing Olympics in two years. It would be his fourth straight Games after competing in Atlanta, Sydney and Athens. Starik has so far failed to win a medal at an Olympics, but his performance on Saturday will surely give him confidence to win Israel's first ever Olympic shooting medal.
