Canadian National Smallbore Championships

Report from our Athletic Program Coach

Thought the club might be interested in this event that just took place in Toronto on the week of 24 Aug to 27 Aug. I took two of our athletes and myself to Toronto for two events including Air Rifle and Sporting Rifle (.22). In the Air Rifle event Club Members Sullivan Fagan came in 6th overall and Sera Nami came in 2nd (silver). The Air event is a 1200 point match where the athletes shoot 60 shots on electronic targets over a 1 hour and 15 minute period on two consecutive days. The second event was the .22 Sporting Rifle where they again shoot 60 shots each on two consecutive days for a total of 1200 points. Each day they shoot three 20 shot relays each of 30 minutes with only 10 minutes in between each relay. Sera Nami came in second in the Expert class for the Silver and Sully came in 3rd for the Bronze also in the Expert class. Even this old coach managed to grab a gold in two categories. One in the Expert class and one in the Veteran class (I guess I haven’t lost the touch yet!).

Both of our athletes have done very well and continue to strive to reach their goal of qualifying for the Canadian National High Performance Team.
