Test events included for the first time in the ISSF World Cup in New Delhi.

Out the four events scheduled, two have already been held, however, no result, nor how many teams participated in each event, was released for disclosure.

I have searched all the shooting sites for the results of the 10m test events for mixed teams in Air Rifle and Air Pistol.

I only found references of the Air Pistol event in the Indian press, certainly because the winning team was India's double mixed team and as a result, the report included Japan's second-ranked teams and Slovenia's third- only that.

None of the results achieved by each team and also no reference was made to the participation of other teams.

I assumed that these events would be an important test for the ISSF to demonstrate the correctness of their decision to replace the events of 50m Rifle Prone and 50m Pistol.

We would like the ISSF, after analyzing the results of the three test events in India, to make public their evaluation, the list of the teams that participated and the results obtained, as it should be in everyone's interest to have knowledge of this important Test that will modify the content of our sport in the next Olympiad in Tokyo.

New Delhi: India's ace shooters Jitu Rai and Heena Sidhu gave India its second medal in the ongoing ISSF World Cup by clinching gold in 10m pistol mixed team event at the Dr. Karni Singh Shooting Range on Monday.
Jitu and Heena defeated Japan's Yukari Konishi and Tomoyuki Matsuda 5-3 in the final. Slovenia's Naphaswan Yangpaiboon and Kevin Venta were placed third.
However, since the mixed event is being used on a trial basis in line with IOC's aim to achieve gender equality in its 2020 Tokyo Olympics program, medals are not being awarded even though the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) executive committee has ratified the recommendations.
The recommendations to include mixed gender event was given by the Abhinav Bindra-led ISSF Athletes Committee and the world governing body soon approved the proposal.
Earlier, Pooja Ghatkar won the women's 10m air rifle bronze to give India its first medal in the competition.
The 28-year-old Ghatkar, a former Asian champion, shot 228.8 in the final of 10m air rifle to finish third on the podium and win her maiden World Cup medal.

James Willett pockets Australia’s second Gold medal in New Delhi

Final Double Trap Men

ISSF World Cup Rifle / Pistol / Shotgun · New Delhi, IND
In his third year as a senior shooter, the 21-year-old from the city of Mulwala, New South Wales, pocketed the third World Cup medal of his career. Home favorite Ankul Mittal and Great Britain’s James Dedman completed the podium by respectively taking Silver and Bronze.
The third Shotgun event of the ISSF World Cup Stage 1 in New Delhi (IND) crowned another young Australian, as Double Trap Men shooter James Willett (21) doubled the Gold medal pocketed by women’s Trap athlete Penny Smith on February 24th.

At the Dr. Karni Shooting Range, Willett took an early lead in the match by crushing all of his first 36 targets, but gradually lost ground to India’s Ankur Mittal (24) and found himself tied with his rival after 30 doubles, when the two of them were the only remaining shooters in the match.

There the Indian missed three hits in a very short span of time, while Willett shot with great precision and found himself sitting on a consistent gap with only five doubles remaining. The Australian athlete managed his advantage wisely, maintaining the lead and collecting the Gold medal with 75 hits, against Mittal’s with 74.

“The crowd was pretty passionate at the range,” Willett said after the medal ceremony. “They had a member of their team among the finalist so there was a lot of clapping and cheering. The atmosphere was good and also the weather conditions were quite nice.”

“I’ll keep competing in Double Trap this year, I’ll try to be at the top for the World Championship and for the Commonwealth Games,” added the Gold medalist.

“I’ll soon switch to Trap,” he concluded, talking about his plans for the mid-future.

On the third step of the podium, competing in a final match for the first time in his senior career, climbed James Dedman. The 18-year-old, who participated here in his third ISSF World Cup, finished with a score of 56 hits, missing a crucial target in his third-to-last double and marking a new Junior World Record in this event.

Dedman was followed by his more experienced teammate Steven Scott (32), who placed in 4th position with 46 targets.

The British shooter, Bronze medalist at last year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (BRA), previously avoided the elimination by completing an almost perfect fourth series, where he crushed 9 out of 10 targets, overtaking Italy’s 26-year-old Alessandro Chianese who then closed in 5th position with 36 hits.

India’s second final participant Sangram Dahiya (27), a first-time final participant, was the first shooter to be eliminated from the match after the 15th double. He concluded in 6th position with 24 hits.

The ISSF World Cup Stage 1 in New Delhi will continue tomorrow with two more finals: the 10m Air Pistol Men at 11:30 am (UTC+5:30) and the 50m Rifle Prone Men at 1:30 pm. Both of them will be streamed live on www.issf-sports.org and on the ISSF official Facebook page.

Final 10m Air Pistol Women

ISSF World Cup Rifle / Pistol / Shotgun · New Delhi, IND
The two teammates finished in 1st and 2nd place at today’s 10m Air Pistol Women final, leaving Singapore’s Teo Shun Xie in third place.
Day-3 of the ISSF Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun World Cup in New Delhi, India, kicked-off with an exciting 10m Air Pistol Women final, which turned once again into a stage fo success for the People’s Republic of China. 

2014 Junior World Champion Lin Yuemei, 23, finished atop of the podium, outscoring the reigning Olympic Champion - her teammate Zhang Mengxue, 26 - with 240.8 points, setting the new world record. 

Lin had already participated in senior events in 2015 and 2016, winning a world cup silver in Gabala, Azerbaijan, two years ago. 

“Actually I was kinda nervous during the final match,” said Lin at the end of the medal ceremony. “Zhang is a great friend of mine, we train and spend a lot of time together. It’s a great feeling to win a medal here, in the first competition of the season.”

“The goal of a shooter is always to win at the Olympics, so it’s never too early to set them as a goal,” continued Lin. “The Organizing Committee did a great job here, everything was perfect, it was also thanks to their excellent job that I won this Gold!”

Olympic Champion Zhang scored 237.8 points to take today’s silver. 

The People’s Republic of China therefore continues to dominate the championship: so far, their athletes won 4 out of the 6 gold medals up for grabs here in New Delhi, and an impressive total tally of 7 out of 18 possible medals. Nine more events will be conducted from today right to the 3rd of March, when the first World Cup stage of the season will be officially closed. 

Singapore’s Teo Shun Xie, 28, - the winner of last year’s world cup bronze medal in Rio de Janeiro,  - scored 217.4 points to win today’s bronze medal. 

Two teammates from Chinese Taipei, Yu Ai Wen, 21, and Tien Chia Chen, 33, followed the medallists in 4th and 5th place with 196.5 and 175.6 points, respectively. 

20-year old Michelle Skeries of Germany, compering in her first senior match after wining a silver medal at last year’s ISSF Junior World Cup in Suhl, Germany, scored 154.4 points to finish in 6th place. 

Golnoush Sebghatollahi of the Islamic Republic of Iran, 26, competing in her first world cup final match today, was the first to drop out of the elimination match after shot 12, taking the 8th place with 113.7 points. India’s Harven Srao, 30, followed her two shots later, closing the final in 7th place with 133.6 points.

ISSF Meetings: Tokyo 2020 recommendation, Agenda 2020 implementations and Championships designation


The ISSF Executive Committee and Administrative Council unanimously approved the recommendation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic program that aims to achieve gender equality and retain 15 Olympic events. Agenda 2020 implementation and designation of 2018 / 2019 ISSF Championships organizers were also among key decisions taken during the meetings.
The ISSF Executive Committee and Administrative Council met in New Delhi, India, on 21 and 22 February. The agenda of the meetings included the discussion of recommendations for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic shooting program, the implementation of Agenda 2020 principles regarding sustainability, and the designation of 2018 and 2019 ISSF Championships organizers.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic Program recommendation
The ISSF Executive Committee and the Administrative Council discussed and unanimously approved the recommendations of the ISSF Ad Hoc Committee concerning the implementation of IOC Agenda 2020 and its objective of achieving gender equality for Tokyo 2020.

After an exhaustive two-year evaluation process, the ISSF Ad-Hoc Committee recommended replacing the Double Trap Men event with a Trap Mixed Gender Team event, the 50m Rifle Prone Men event with a 10m Air Rifle Mixed Gender Team event and the 50m Pistol Men event with a 10m Air Pistol Mixed Gender Team event.  This proposal was developed to preserve discipline parity and retain 15 Olympic shooting events – 5 Rifle, 5 Pistol, 5 Shotgun.  

This recommendation will be forwarded to the IOC by 28 February, the IOC deadline for international federations to submit their 2020 program proposals.  The IOC Program Commission will then evaluate the proposal and the IOC Executive Board will decide the 2020 Olympic shooting events program later this summer.  

“We believe this is a fundamental step forward for our beloved sport,” ISSF President Olegario Vázquez Raña said. “We fully support gender equality, and our Committees have worked very hard to develop a Tokyo 2020 proposal that will support the future growth of our sport. We want to retain 15 Olympic events, preserve equality in our three disciplines - rifle, pistol and shotgun - and offer all female and male athletes the same opportunities. Shooting is one of the oldest and most universal sports of the world; inclusion is part of our DNA.”

A detailed explanation regarding the development of these proposals to achieve gender equality in shooting was posted on the ISSF website on 20 February (http://www.issf-sports.org/news.ashx?newsid=2729 )

Agenda 2020 implementation: Sustainability
The ISSF Executive Committee designated a new Ad Hoc Committee for Sustainability and appointed Mr. Jörg Brokamp, Chairman of the ISSF Technical Committee, as Chairman of the new body. The Committee will include six members: ISSF Executive Committee member Robert Mitchell, the Chairman of the ISSF Judges Committee Peter Underhill, the Chairman of the ISSF Shotgun Committee Demetris Lordos, the member of the European Shooting Confederation Environment Committee Stefano Rosi, the Managing Director of the German Shooting Ranges Association Joachim Streitberger and the Member of the ISSF Medical Committee Dr. Neda Nozari. They will be responsible for developing ISSF sustainability and environmental policies and guidelines, on the road to Tokyo 2020.

“Sustainability is one of the working principles of the Olympic Movement,” ISSF Secretary General Franz Schreiber said. “The ISSF and its Technical Committee have always paid special attention to the importance of environmental issues. Now, with the appointment of an Ad Hoc Committee on Sustainability, this will become an even higher priority for the ISSF and our sport.”

Designation of 2018 and 2019 ISSF Championships
The ISSF Executive Committee designated ISSF Championships organizers for the 2018 and the 2019 seasons, with the exception of the 2018 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup Final (final decision is still pending). The Organizing Committees awarded were:
-    2018 ISSF Shotgun World Cup Final: Al Ain (UAE)
-    2019 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup stage: Munich (GER)
-    2019 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup stage: New Delhi (IND)
-    2019 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup stage: Beijing (CHN)
-    2019 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup stage: Rio de Janeiro (BRA)
-    2019 ISSF Shotgun World Cup stage: Changwon (KOR)
-    2019 ISSF Shotgun World Cup stage: Lathi (FIN)
-    2019 ISSF Shotgun World Cup stage: Al Ain (UAE)
-    2019 ISSF Shotgun World Cup stage: Acapulco (MEX)
-    2019 ISSF Junior World Cup: Suhl (GER)

A full report of the meetings will be published in the ISSF News Magazine 03/2017. In accordance to the principle of transparency the agenda and the minutes will be posted on a public section of the ISSF website (http://www.issf-sports.org/theissf/organisation/issfreports.ashx) as soon as they are approved by the relevant bodies.
