The ISSF President Olegario Vazquez Raña were pretty satisfied as today's event sealed the Olympic Shooting program.

“We have witnessed the best shooting sport competitions in the history of the sport here in Rio de Janeiro, we would like to thank the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee, and all the volunteers who worked with us in these days,” he said. “The rule changes we adopted after London 2012 proved to be successful, improving the presentation of our sport.”

“The reactions of the spectators and the media coverage we recorded in these days were exceptional,” added the ISSF Secretary General Franz Schreiber. “Sometimes changes are not easy, but the results pay off, and prove that we are going in the right direction.”
