it’s all close to each other winning or ….

Only 7 shot before the end of the contest in Sonya’s rifle the firing pin breaks. Just 5 minutes are still on the clock. Coach Krenn with a replacement part for an Austrian shooter tries to save the match. But it’s too late, because there is no time credit. Here only helps the comfort of her teammates Beate Gauss and Eva Rösken….

2nd CISM World Cadet Games Ecuador 2014

Before the closing ceremony, the president of the CISM Sport Committee Shooting, colonel Bruno Wolfensberger, invited Ecuadorian authorities , heads of mission, team officials and range officials together with the sport shooters to the Casino of the Naval school of Salinas for the presentation of awards of all shooting events (rifle and pistol). It also held to honour the best shooters and teams in the competition. Finally, Col Wolfensberger decided to present two special awards.

“Since 10 years I’m in CISM sports shooting, there was never a fair play trophy presentation. I would like to see a fact which took place this week to be taken into consideration.
Sri Lanka team broken some of their weapons and could not participate any further in the competition. The team of Qatar shared their weapons so Sri Lanka could take part in the on going competition. I know that it is very difficult if not nearly impossible to pass ones own gun at someone else, but the Qatari did. I therefore address the fair play award to this team. I won’t forget the judges. It is the first time that an official was injured during the race and we decided to create the trophy of the injured judge.”

In addition to the traditional equipment essential to the practice of shooting, there is a small object that is more than useful when one is on a shooting stand: the hearing protection. Upon your entry on the stand, you are asked to wear something either model. There is the old version, but always practical, helmet with foam protections. For younger people, there are yellow earplugs distributed in the aircraft, now there is worn around the neck. Even more modern, molded to his own ear protectors: great chic. He remains the good old solution of the finger in the ear but not practical to take pictures!
And during this time, Colonel Bruno Wolfensberger, President of the CISM shooting committee is working quietly in his office. Without hearing protection…

The shooting range and the track are separated by a few hundred meters. When the competition begins, you feel immediately that good smell of powder invade nearby because other noises, deaf for rifles to 300 m and the crackle of pistols at 25 m, there are also smells. All senses are really wake for this discipline. In the program of the day: training the rifle for the test of speed, precision at the 25 m individual pistol for men, the afternoon training for male and female speed contest.
