New ISSF rules

Rifle changes, for instance your jacket…. have you changed the side panel already?

Check ISSF rule: 7.5.4.5

The construction of the side panel may not place any horizontal seam or seams under the elbow of the support arm in the standing position. Seams must not be placed less than 70 mm above or less than 20 mm below the point of the elbow.

and have you tested and changed your shooting shoes?

Check ISSF rule: 7.5.3.3 (flexibility)

To demonstrate that soles are flexible, athletes must walk normally (heel-toe) at all times while on the FOP.
A warning will be given for the first offense, a two-point penalty and disqualification will be given for subsequent Violations.

Check ISSF rule: 7.5.2.3

Use the Shoe Sole Flexibility Tester (see operating instructions at Annex A) to check the flexibility of the sole of the shoes. The soles of athletes’ shoes must bend at least 22.5 degrees when a force of 15 Newton-Meters is applied to the heel area while the boot or shoe is clamped in the testing device.

Check ISSF rule: 7.5.3.6 (Shoe soles)

The shoe sole must follow the external curvature of the shoe and may not extend more than 5.0 mm beyond the external dimensions of the shoe at any point. Toes or heels may not be cut square or flat.

 

Stay informed, get your equipment in order and don’t get a nasty surprise at a championship!

History of CISM

From today, the 65th birthday of CISM, February 18th 2013, you can find here the official website hosted by the CISM Sport Committee Shooting.banner-history

Five founding nations – Belgium, Denmark, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands- created CISM while meeting in Nice at a fencing event on 18 February 1948. Although they were only European countries, CISM founding nations did have a global project in mind.

This desire among the military to meet in sports arenas instead of battlegrounds was nothing new in 1948. Indeed, just after the First World War, the first Interallied Games were organised upon the initiative of General Pershing and his entourage with 18 nations representing five continents. In 1919, 1500 athletes competed in 24 different sports in front of a large audience in Joinville in the Paris suburbs.

Following the Second World War, the Allied Forces Sports Council was revived. The second Interallied Games were held in Berlin in 1946. Only athletics competitions were organised. The desire to meet among soldiers was stronger than the need to produce striking sports achievements at all costs. On May 1946, the Allied Forces Sports Council was set up, namely by Colonel Debrus and Major Mollet who were among the founding fathers of CISM two years later. Unfortunately, because of political discord, the Allied Forces Sports Council was extinguished in 1947. However, the ideal was rekindled the following year with the founding of CISM and the rise of a global vision.

Since its foundation in 1948, CISM’s universality became increasing real, developed as it was by the Presidents and Secretaries General who led the organisation over the years. In 1950, Argentina and Egypt joined the –by then – nine European countries. In 1951, it was the USA’s turn to join. In 1952, Iraq, the Lebanon, Pakistan and Syria became members.

Over the years, membership has progressed at a steady pace. The mergence of Cold War and the setting up of SKDA- a military sports organisation whose member nations were also members of the Warsaw Pact-denied CISM the official universal status it wantcraved and needed to be recognized by the IOC. But the political turnoil at the end of the 80’s and more specifically the fall of the Berlin wall all of a sudden gave renewed impetus to CISM’expansion . In the space of just four years (1991-1995), 31 new member countries joined the organisation.
Such rapid progress led to recognition by international institutions as the IOC

Another important event in CISM history occurred in September 1995 with the organisation of the 1st Military World Games in Rome. CISM has become, with its 133 member nations, its annual world, continental and regional sports calendar, the high level of its competitors (The International Military Sports Council can no longer keep track of the countless world and continental champions who are also renowned for their exploits within civilian competition), one of the biggest sports institution in the world.
