Qualification for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games is set to intensify as more than 150 
shooters from 34 countries gather in Sydney, Australia, for the IPC Shooting World Cup 
which gets underway on Tuesday (15 September).
The World Cup is the second Paralympic qualifier of 2015, and also acts as the 
penultimate competition where athletes can secure quota places for Rio 2016 in less
 than one years’ time.
Australia head into their home World Cup with six places already confirmed. Experienced 
rifle shooter Libby Kosmala, with an incredible seven Paralympic Games behind her, will 
lead her team out at the Sydney International Shooting Centre.
Teammate Mark Bradley is searching for a place at his second Paralympic Games, and 
will go up against New Zealand’s Philip Skinner, who finished in the top 10 in R4 (mixed 
10m air rifle standing SH2) on his competitive debut in Antalya, Turkey, in May.
New Zealand has sent their biggest ever team to a World Cup with the target of an
increased squad for Rio 2016, led by Athens 2004 Paralympic champion Michael Johnson.
“With upcoming World Cups in Sydney and the USA, New Zealand has the potential to
send more than one Paralympic shooter to Rio; it's just up to those shooters to perform,
Johnson said.
Powerhouses South Korea have the biggest contingent in Sydney with 23 shooters.
Whilst the country already have 11 tickets to Brazil through performances from R3 (mixed 
10m air rifle prone SH1) world champion Jinho Park, the team will be looking to assess the 
progress of their competitors.
The USA are also hoping for a strong showing as they continue to develop their shooting 
para-sport programme. With two places already confirmed for Rio 2016, John Joss and 
Shaun Tichenor, both on active duty with the armed forces, are on the hunt for more spots 
to add to those already sealed by 19-year-old riflewoman McKenna Dahl and pistol shooter 
Michael Tagliapietra.
Rio 2016 hosts Brazil have sent nine athletes, including pistol shooter Geraldo Rosenthal 
who was awarded 2013 Best Shooter of the Year by the Brazilian Paralympic Committee. 
Debora Campos has already secured a place for her country in P3 (mixed 25m pistol SH1).
A number of other countries are looking for their first quota places including Canada, Croatia, 
India, Kazakhstan, Kenya, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, Singapore and Thailand.
The 2015 IPC Shooting World Cup in Sydney runs until 19 September. Live results will be 
available at theIPC Shooting website.
Live updates, behind the scenes content and pictures, will also be posted to IPC Shooting’s Twitter andFacebook pages under the #SydneyWorldCup15.
The final Paralympic qualifier of 2015 will take place in Fort Benning, USA, from 3-7 November
