Shooting sports events at Modern Olympics since 1896 zapped
The International Shooting Sports Federation, the governing body for Olympic-style shooting, has recommended a host of changes that could see more gender equality in the Tokyo games.
The ISSF Administrative Council, meeting in New Delhi, India last month, unanimously approved a plan to meet Olympic recommendations to stimulate women’s participation and involvement in sport by creating more participation opportunities at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
The upside of the plan: create new Trap Mixed Gender Team, 10m Air Rifle Mixed Gender Team, and 10m Air Pistol Mixed Gender Team events.
The downside: to make room it would remove the current Men’s Double Trap, Men’s 50m Rifle Prone, and Men’s 50m Pistol events.
