Changwon is ready to host the biggest competition of the season: the 52nd ISSF World Championship in all events

52nd ISSF World Championship All Events · Changwon, KOR

The Korean city will welcome more than 1800 shooters, representing 90 nations and piling up almost 3500 starts. The first title will be awarded on September 2nd, while the last one will be delivered on September 14th.

The 52nd edition of the ISSF World Championship in all events is about to start in Changwon (KOR): the competition will go down from August 31st to September 15th. Most of the events will take place at the newly built Changwon International Shooting Range — the same venue that hosted this year’s ISSF World Cup in April — while the 300m events will be contested at the Jinhae Naval Shooting Range.

 

A total of 1806 shooters will participate in the competition, representing 90 National Olympic Committees and piling up 3457 starts in 66 events and five disciplines: Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun, Running Target and Target Sprint.

 

The first titles of the championship will be awarded on September 2nd in the 10m Air Rifle Mixed Team and 10m Air Pistol Mixed Team events, two of the three new events that were recently added to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Programme. Indeed, the ISSF World Championship in Changwon will also distribute a total of 60 Olympic quota places in the 15 Olympic Shooting events: four per each of the 12 individual events and two per each of the three mixed team ones.

 

The complete schedule of the championship is available here.

 

The competition will seal the 2018 ISSF Season, which opened last March in Guadalajara (MEX) with the first of the six stages of the 2018 ISSF World Cup Series.

 

Some finals will be streamed live on the ISSF website, on the Federation’s Livestream channel and on its official Facebook page.

 

Live results, news and updates will be available on www.issf-sports.org and on all ISSF social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Weibo and Youku.
