About Paralympic Shooting Sport

About the Sport

1Shooting has been a part of the Paralympic Games since 1976 in Toronto and is open to all athletes who have a physical impairment.
The sport is a test of accuracy and control, in which competitors use pistols or rifles to fire a series of shots at a stationary target.
There are two categories of competition – wheelchair and standing – and athletes compete in rifle and pistol events from distances of 10m, 25m and 50m in men’s, women’s and mixed competitions.
Shooting employs a classification system that allows athletes from different disability classes to compete in the same event either individually or in teams.
The sport is governed by the IPC and co-ordinated by the IPC Shooting Sport Technical Committee following the modified rules of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF). These rules take into account the differences that exist between Shooting for the able-bodied and Shooting for persons with an impairment.
Competition Description
The goal of Shooting is to place a series of shots inside the centre ring of the bull's-eye. The target is comprised of 10 concentric scoring rings with a score grade of one to 10, the central ring giving 10 points. In the final, the rings are subdivided into more score zones with 10.9 being the highest possible score.
Shooting competitions are divided into two major events: Air Rifle and Pistol competitions at three distance: 10, 25 and 50m. The rules depend on the gun, the distance, the target, the shooting position, the number of shots and the time limit. Competitors accumulate points for the value of their shots.
Each competition consists of a qualification and a final round. The score in the final round is added to the athlete's score in the qualification round. The winner is the competitor who gathers the most points by the end of the competition.
Of the 12 Paralympic Shooting events, six are open to both women and men, three are open to women only and three are open to men only.
Sports Equipment
Athletes use .22 calibre rifles and air guns (pneumatic, CO2 gas or spring). Upon trigger activation, the CO2 liquid changes to gas and activates the projectile toward the target. The pneumatic rifle uses a multiple pump system to store air pressure in a reservoir and trigger compression activates the projectile toward the target.
For 10m events held with an Air Rifle or Air Pistol, bullets with a diameter of 4.5mm are use. For 25m Pistol events, and 50m Pistol and Rifle events, 5.6mm bullets are used.
The standard target is a cardboard square with concentric white and black rings around a black centre ring (or bull's-eye). For the Paralympic Games, five different targets are used depending on the type of gun. These targets are electronic for increased accuracy.
Shooting has been part of the Paralympic Games since Toronto in 1976. Since the 1980 Paralympic Games Shooting has developed from a disability-orientated classification system towards a functional classification system. This has resulted in a reduction in the number of classes from five classes with separate events at the Seoul 1988 Paralympic Games to three classes with integrated events since the Atlanta 1996 Paralympics.
In late 2010 the IPC and the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to continue working together in developing Shooting further in the years ahead.
It covers several areas including management, promotion of competitions and events, knowledge exchange and general development of the Paralympic Sport and participating athletes.
While the IPC’s shooting competitions will remain completely independent in the near future, it was agreed that ISSF would work with IPC Shooting to identify suitable ISSF Technical Officials to be involved in IPC recognized competitions. In such cases, the ISSF would remain as the sole and supreme authority controlling the certification of ISSF officials.

The London 2012 Paralympic Games will go off with a bang – quite literally. The first medal ceremony of the Games is traditionally always in shooting and will go to an athlete in the men’s P1 10m Air Pistol SH1 event on 30 August.
It is too early to say which athletes will definitely compete in London, as many have not been officially selected by their teams, but here’s a run-down of what can likely be expected in Paralympic Shooting.
30 August
Hungary’s Gyula Gurisatti is one of the favourites for the P1 men’s 10m Air Pistol SH1 event, but he will face stiff competition from USA’s Eric Hollen. Spectators can also watch the R2 women’s 10m Air Rifle Standing SH1 on the same day, in which Great Britain’s Deanna Coates is a firm favourite for the podium. The 58-year-old will try to out-shoot Slovakia’s Veronika Vadovicova, who is almost 30 years younger and won gold in Beijing, as well as Australia’s 70-year-old Libby Kosmala, who may be ending her competitive career in London as the oldest Paralympian there.
31 August
If you only have one day to head to the Shooting range, make it this one. Great Britain’s Matt Skelhon is likely to delight home crowds in the R1 men’s 10m Air Rifle standing SH1. His toughest competition comes from teammate Nathan Milgate, so home spectators may be in for a double delight. Other strong contenders are Australian cattle farmer, Ashley Adams, as well as Beijing gold medallist Jonas Jacobsson. Great Britain’s Pam Grainger also looks set to excel in the P2 women’s 10m Air Pistol SH1, though she can expect Azerbaijan’s Yelena Taranova to be a tough competitor.
1 September
The mixed 10m Air Rifle Prone SH1 and SH2 events take place, with Skelhon, the incumbent gold medallist, and Milgate the favourites in the SH1 event. New Zealand’s Michael Johnson and Great Britain’s James Bevis are top contenders for the SH2 competition.
2 September
Johnson is also a firm favourite for the following day in the R4 mixed 10m Air Rifle Standing SH2. He will hope to better his bronze from Beijing, but will face strong competition from Korea’s Youngjun Jeon and Australia’s Mark Bradley.
3 September
This will be one of the fiercest days of the competition in the P3 mixed 25m Pistol SH1. Russia’s Sergey Malyshev, South Africa’s Vonnie Kohne, Korea’s Juhee Lee and Brazil’s Sergio Vida are all strong contenders for the podium.
4 September
The R6 mixed 50m Rifle Prone SH1 is set to delight fans with a star-studded lineup of Skelhon, Jacobsson, Adams and Germany’s Natascha Hiltrop.
5 September
The R7 men's 50m Rifle 3 Positions SH1 will play out with China’s 27-year-old, Dong Chao likely to be one of the highlights. But Adams is also a strong contender and Jacobsson will push for another gold in the event.
6 September
Korea’s Yunri Lee, who won gold in Beijing, is a firm favourite for the final shooting event: the women's R8 50m Rifle 3 Positions SH1. She will face stiff competition from Slovakia’s Veronika Vadovicova and Beijing bronze-medallist Cuiping Zhang.
For many of these days, a Royal Artillery Barracks day pass is available, allowing visitors to see both Archery and Shooting.

Um bom Chefe de Equipe faz a diferença numa competição

A importância de ter um bom líder de equipe com um bom conhecimento das regras de tiro em benefício da equipe

Um dos objetivos do meu Blog é de colocar em discussão as regras e regulamentos de tiro para que os atletas e dirigentes das equipes estejam familiarizados e não cometam erros por falta de conhecimento das regras ou, até mesmo, percam o momento certo para intervir quando houver alguma situação anômala que possa interferir no resultado do atirador.  Uma regra, se mal aplicada ou interpretada, pode alterar um resultado ou ate mudar a classificação final de uma competição.
O conhecimento das regras pelo atirador é muito importante, mas, é mais importante que o Líder da equipe, o Técnico ou qualquer pessoa designada a acompanhar o atirador durante uma prova, tenha conhecimento das mesmas para dar um bom apoio para o atirador durante a competição.  Podemos citar dois exemplos para mostrar a importância de alguém intervir na hora certa ou quão prejudicial pode ser ao atirador se essa intervenção for tardia.

1.       O Técnico americano acompanhando seu atirador, na prova de 3X40, em Guadalajara, percebeu que os tiros começaram a dispersar, com valores incompatíveis para o nível do seu atirador, imediatamente chamou um membro do Júri e pediu que chamasse seu atirador. Por meio de binóculos conseguiram ver que a banda de borracha do alvo estava com um buraco fora do normal. O Técnico então solicitou a mudança de posto de tiro, o que foi aceito pelos membros do Júri, que designaram um novo posto de Tiro e autorizou tiros de ensaio e certo numero de tiros extras. A partir daí, a prova do atirador recomeçou com valores normais. No final da prova, os membros do Júri retiraram a banda de borracha e a folha de controle e constatou que a mesma havia ficado emperrada o que ocasionou o buraco pela concentração dos tiros no centro do alvo, interferindo nos registros dos tiros que passavam por esse ponto. Felizmente a intervenção do técnico foi imediata em tempo de corrigir a falha do equipamento, sem prejuízo ao resultado do seu atirador, tornando possível para que o Júri pudesse identificar os tiros e corrigir o resultado ao final da prova.

2.       Na Coréia, na Copa Mundial em Changwon, um atirador coreano terminou a rodada de qualificação, de Pistola de Ar, com uma vantagem de sete pontos sobre o segundo classificado. Durante a Final, no meio da série, os valores dos tiros começaram a dispersar, com resultados muito abaixo do que seria compatível com o atirador. Alguns espectadores perceberam que a tira de papel não estava se movimentando o que ocasionou um buraco na tira provocando erro no registro dos valores tos tiros. O técnico do atirador demorou muito para tomar uma decisão de interromper a sequência de tiros, cerca de cinco ou seis tiros foram disparados antes que a falha fosse corrigida. Esse atirador, embora iniciando a Final com sete pontos de vantagem sobre o segundo classificado, terminou a fase Final em segundo lugar com 1.3 pontos abaixo do vencedor.
Essas duas situações relatadas mostram a importância de ter uma pessoa que conheça as regras de tiro para acompanhar o atirador durante uma competição. Por essa razão achamos oportuno colocarmos em evidência as Regras Básicas de conduta para atiradores e oficiais das equipes e como é importante a equipe ter um Líder competente.

Um atirador pode ser indicado para essa função. O Líder deve sempre cooperar com os oficiais do estande no interesse da segurança, da eficiência da condução da competição e de uma boa ética esportiva.                 Conhecimento das Regras. Todos os atiradores, chefe de equipes e oficiais devem conhecer as regras da ISSF e devem assegurar que elas sejam aplicadas. É obrigação de cada atirador respeitar as regras.
