2012 ISSF World Cup in all events in Beijing cancelled.

2012 ISSF World Cup in all events in Beijing (CHN) has been cancelled in agreement with the Chinese Shooting Association. The World Cup Stage will not be rescheduled.

The ISSF, in agreement with the Chinese Shooting Association, has decided to cancel the 2012 ISSF World Cup stage in Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun events that was scheduled to take place in Beijing on 16-25 June 2012. 

In the last few days, special security restrictions associated with the 18th National Congress in China have created conditions that make it impossible for the Chinese Shooting Association to organize this year's ISSF World Cup in Beijing.  These restrictions are new and were completely unforeseen by the Chinese Shooting Association. 

The ISSF and our Chinese Member Federation considered several alternatives, but we decided that alternative late June dates for this World Cup were too close to the Olympic Games to make suitable arrangements for such a large World Cup. 

We are also aware that several Member Federations are concerned that further changes to the 2012 World Cup program would disturb their preparations for the Olympic Games.
 
Therefore, please be informed that the ISSF World Cup for Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun in Beijing, China is cancelled.
