SAVE 50M PISTOL as an olympic event
Pierre de Coubertin is turning in his grave over the ISSF proposal to delete 50m rifle and 50m pistol from the Olympic program
The ISSF seem to be doing everything in their power to kill shooting events at the olympic games. Stand strong ISSF. Dont cave in
Make 50m pistol and rifle mixed - add a mixed 25 m event - but dont allow this destruction of matches that are the essence of our sport
- the ISSF may be destroying the olympic shooting programme -
I urge everyone to share and flood the ISSF and their local, state and national shooting associations with messages of disapproval
Myself, as an Olympian and 50m pistol shooter at Commonwealth games level, and all eleite level 50m pistol shooters that I have contacted, are outraged at this decision
I urge all concerned to contact the ISSF and condemn this in the strongest possible terms
If no shooting organisations contact the ISSF with their dissaproval, the ISSF will assume that there is widespread acceptance of this destructive move
It is clear that cartridge guns are slowly but surely being removed from Olympic competition under various guises.
WE cannot stand by and let this happen without a whimper.
The “anti gunners” would be proud of the ISSF and their proposals
Its a sad day -
