After the one dedicated to skeet shooting, it’s time for the President’s Cup dedicated to shooting. From rifles and clay pigeons in Larnaca, we move on to pistols and carbines in Wroclaw (Poland).
The best in the world challenge each other by 10, from 25 and 50m in the Olympic program competitions, which however will present formats revisited for the occasion for the competition which from this year replaces what was once the World Cup Finals.
There will therefore be three steps for all events: the first qualification, then that of the two semi-finals at 4 and finally, in a postponed date of twenty-four or forty-eight hours, the final; including Mixed Team events, which will be the first to open the program.
For Italy, on the firing lines, there will be only one representative: Sofia Ceccarello who will take part in both the 10m air rifle competition and the 3-position 50m race, hoping to get the best possible result.
In the short distance race, dreaming is legitimate, even if the lot of entries in the contest will – inevitably – be of the highest level. The 2002 class shooter will have to live the event with carefree enjoying what she deserved throughout a 2021 that was made up of victories, disappointments, but also a lot of learning.
The road is then drawn. President’s Cup 2021 target shooting: fire to the powders from Friday 5 November, with the closure of the activities instead scheduled for Tuesday 9 November.
