CISM Regional Switzerland 2017

LCol Wanner (SUI)

From October 2nd – 6th 2017, the Swiss CISM team will organise a CISM Regional championship. LCol Christian WANNER, the new chief of Swiss CISM Shooting  welcomes the teams at the Guntelsey shooting ranges.

The invitation has been sent to the invited nations and as the organiser is focusing on a “regional” tournament (more Europe and only a few selected other nations) a few nations had to be disappointed for not being able to participate. As there were not enough accommodations and infrastructures due to the cause of renovations in the barracks and of course as the date of the final entry has already passed and the maximum of participants and nations have been reached. All nations however  are kindly invited to join the next CISM Shooting World Championships 2018, held in Switzerland (29.05.18-06.06.2018)

The invitation and program can be found here: Invitation Shooting Switzerland 2017

Salzburg-Liefering, 01. September 2017  – Von 29. bis 31. August fand ein Internationales Pistolenturnier des Internationalen Militärsportverbandes CISM in Salzburg-Liefering statt.

Internationaler Militärsportverband CISM

Der Internationale Militärsportverband CISM (Conseil International du Sport Militaire) ist neben dem Internationalen Olympischen Komitee einer der größten Sportverbände der Welt. Nahezu deckungsgleich mit der Grundidee der Olympischen Bewegung bezweckt auch CISM, über den sportlichen Wettkampf Angehörige von Streitkräften aus aller Welt zusammenzuführen, um einander kennen- und verstehen zu lernen. Der offizielle Beitritt Österreichs zum CISM erfolgte am 7. Juli 1958 als 23. Mitgliedsland, mittlerweile zählt Österreich zu einem der aktivsten Mitgliedsstaaten.

Das Turnier

Teilnehmer aus vier europäischen Ländern (Tschechien, Schweden, Ukraine und dem Gastgeberland Österreich) nahmen an diesem Turnier teil. Im Einzel- und Team-Wettbewerb stellen die Teilnehmer ihr Können unter Beweis.


Den Einzelwettbewerb in Präzision- und Schnellfeuer gewann Tomas Tehan aus Tschechien mit dem Gesamtergebnis von 584 Punkten vor dem Punktegleichen Oleksanr Petriv aus der Ukraine und Mikael Nilsson aus Schweden mit insgesamt 577 Punkten. Die Österreicher Karl Pavlis und Andreas Auprich belegten die Plätze 4 und 5.

Den Teamwettbewerb in Präzision- und Schnellfeuer gewann das Team aus der Ukraine mit einer Gesamtpunkteanzahl von 1.722 Punkten vor dem schwedischen Team mit 1.714 Punkten, während das tschechische Team den dritten Platz mit insgesamt 1.699 Punkten errang. Knapp dahinter landete das österreichische Team mit 1.697 Punkten auf dem undankbaren vierten Platz.

In der Disziplin Militärisches Schnellfeuer belegte Andreas Auprich (Österreich) punktegleich mit Tomas Tehan (Tschechien) den zweiten Platz mit 584 Punkten vor dem Drittplatzierten Oleksandr Petriv (Ukraine) mit 582 Punkten.

Österreich gewinnt den Teamwettbewerb

Den Teamwettbewerb im Militärischen Schnellfeuer gewann das österreichische Team mit 1.730 Punkten vor dem Team aus der Ukraine mit 1.722 Punkten und den tschechischen Kameraden mit 1.712 Punkten.

Gesamtsieger aller Bewerbe wurde Tomas Tehan mit einer Gesamtpunktezahl von 2.332 vor Oleksanr Petriv (Ukraine) mit 2.327 Punkten und dem Österreicher Andreas Auprich mit 2.310 Punkten.

Closing dinner Regional CISM Shooting championship Austria 2017

On August 31st the awards were handed out by Brigadier General Heinz Hufler and a closing dinner was presented. The president of the CISM Sport Committee Shooting Colonel Bruno Wolfensberger thanked the General for giving the opportunity to organise this event in Salzburg. A special thank you and appreciation also to Warrant Officer Andreas Sodl who not only organised this championship but also showed some special “Friendship through sport“. He managed to supply the Ukraine pistol team with guns and ammunition – free of charge – as they were not permitted to take their own shooting equipment out of their country. Here we can see that by standing together  the people in military sports can overcome political barriers. The participants stayed at the Schwarzenbergkaserne in Salzburg which are near to the Liefering shooting ranges and were well presented.

3rd day results Regional CISM Shooting championship Austria 2017

At the third day in Salzburg the teams will have a hard day work in order to compete in both the team and Individual matches of the Military Rapid Fire discipline. The Regional tournament is facing it’s end at the Liefering shooting ranges. The championship will close after the awards have been given and the closing dinner is ended today.

The team from the Ukraine could not travel with their firearms as the national regulations in Ukraine have changed. Andreas Sodl (AUT) immediately organized additional pistols and ammunition, so that the Ukrainians could participate. Friendship through sport at it’s best as even the ammunition has been given to the Ukrainians, free of charge by warrant-officer Sodl. President CSC Shooting, col Wolfensberger is at the championship to see with his own eyes the effort the Austrian delegation to CISM and the Austrian Military Pistol team have made to organise this championship.
