Beijing, China – October 8th to 11th, 2008
Women’s 10m Rifle qualification round
The Federation of University Sports of China is a very active member of FISU that organized two World University Championships in 2008: water skiing and sports shooting. Sport Shooting is a new sport in our program, but it seems to be very attractive for students, for the national federations of university sports as well as for the International Sports Shooting Federation.
The first World University Championship in this discipline took place in Pilsen (CZE) in 2003, attracting 28 countries and approximately 300 participants. As an optional sport at the Bangkok Universiade (THA) in 2007, it drew nearly 400 marksmen from 43 countries! This is truly exceptional, which goes to show how popular the sport actually is. For this second World University Championship, our marksmen had the opportunity to use the infrastructures of the last Olympic Games that took place, as you know, in Beijing. In other words, the technical equipment was excellent, among the best in the world, and totally in compliance with the ISSF norms.
