ISSF World Cup Shotgun · Al Ain, UAE

The improved format of the TV coverage won't be the only innovation trialed in Al Ain. An additional arbitration control will be utilised to determine hit or miss targets during the Finals in all five events.

The referees of the Finals will have a chance to immediately check any disputed targets on a monitor with intstant replay of the shot, in the presense of the Jury of Appeal member.  The referee will be able to review and possibly revise the original decision.

The Video Replay System will be introduced in the first Final on Monday April 8th, which will be the Trap Women event.  The review of the referee's decision will take place if an athlete protests, or if the opinons of either side referees conflict. 

If the Video Replay System proves successful in Al Ain, a decision will then be taken to introduce the additional arbitration control on a permanent basis.
