Smith surges towards Rio
Monday 25 January 2016
Australia’s Natalie Smith (Meadowbrook, QLD) secured a sensational victory over Slovakian Paralympic and World Championships medallist Veronika Vadovicova in the Women’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions, at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) World Cup, in Al Ain, UAE.
Smith sealed the win after overtaking London 2012 bronze medallist Vadovicova during the standing round.
Vadovicova had taken the lead in the early stages of the match, easing into first place during the kneeling round and maintaining it during the prone.
However Smith had other ideas, out-shooting the Slovakian with the first shots of the standing portion. Smith retained her position throughout, finishing with a perfect 10.9 to seal the win and a new Oceania record of 450.0.
Aiming4Gold 2016 Squad named
Friday 4 December 2015
Shooting Australia today nominated the Aiming4Gold (A4G) squad for 2016. The squad of 48 includes 18 juniors under the age of 20.
Shooting Australia’s High Performance Manager Tim Mahon said the nominations were of a high quality.
“2015 was a consolidating year for Shooting Australia as we turn our attention to the Rio Olympics and Paralympic Games. I am confident those who have been nominated will build on the foundations and successes achieved over the last 12 months,” Mahon said.
A4G is Shooting Australia’s high performance program, a program designed to deliver on Australia’s Winning Edge performance goals – to win medals at events that matter and to assist athletes in making informed decisions, both on and off the shooting range.
