From USA Shooting - USA Shooting Pistol Selection Match Set to Get Underway with Much at Stake
Colorado Springs, Colorado
- The ranges of the USA Shooting Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., will come alive over the next week with 40 of the best pistol athletes in the country coming together for a chance to represent the USA Shooting Team at upcoming events including World Cup USA, the World Championships and the Championship of the America’s (CAT).
The action gets underway Tuesday, February 25 with Men’s Rapid Fire Pistol and Women’s Air Pistol. Fifteen athletes will emerge as the leading candidates for both World Championship and CAT selection, though the second of the two-part qualification won’t take place until May. The top-three athletes in each of the five pistol events contested are assured a spot on the World Cup USA roster and will shoot in Ft. Benning, Ga., during the March 27-April 4 event.
