The SA Shooting Sport Federation is sending a large contingent to Cairo to compete.
All ISSF disciplines (Olympic)
These Championships are held every four years in different locations in Africa.
The Egyptians are very strong in all these events and Tunisia has some excellent lady air rifle shooters.Namibia, a few excellent pistol shooters.
The SA air rifle shooters are all products of the 3 P Air Rifle programme as practised by SANSSU.Once they have reached a high standard at school they are encouraged to participate in the Olympic air rifle discipline as well as the other codes. No senior shooters were able to make the SA Air Rifle team---not that there are many of them unfortunately---hopefully the scenario will change in the future.
Most of the members of the smallbore rifle team are also products of SANSSU.
Good luck boys and girls!
