A Combination For The history Books Every four years, athletes gather from around the world to compete in the Olympic Games, a celebration of the spirit of peaceful competition that embodies all sports. Even for competitors who don't participate of Olympic sports like football or golf, for example the Games embody international unity and teamwork. When someone is up on that platform with a gold medal around his or her neck, they represent every person who has ever run a race, or thrown a ball, or swam a lap. For those athletes whose sports aren't included in the actual Olympics, there are "exhibition games" non-medal events which allow everyone the dream that their sport, no matter how obscure, might someday be part of the Games.

What is UIT (ISSF) Shooting?
The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF), formerly the UIT is the governing body of the International Amateur Shooting Sports at international and world-wide levels of competition, including World Championships and the Olympic Games. USA Shooting is the national governing body for ISSF-style shooting in the United States by authority of the US Olympic Committee and the ISSF. In the Olympics, the shooting sports continue to draw the third-greatest number of countries and impose participation quotas to keep competitors to a manageable number. One of the greatest surges in participation came in 1984, when separate women's events were first added to the Olympic program. The ISSF recognizes a huge number of different shooting events in rifle, pistol, shotgun, and running target though only

Make the invisible athletes visible The U.S. Olympic shooting team has won the third largest total of medals in any Olympic sport, yet the lack of mainstream American reporting on shooting makes these competitors 'invisible athletes' By James A. Swan, Ph.D. Author
"In Defense of Hunting" The eyes of the world are on Athens, where the Summer Olympics is unfolding. Many of the athletes are appearing on the covers of popular magazines and in splashy newspaper stories and yet, like in George Orwell's "Animal Farm," all are equal but some are more equal than others. Historically, the U.S. Olympic shooting team has won the third largest total of medals in any Olympic sport, after track and field and swimming. But shotgun, rifle, pistol and archery competitions get little recognition in the US print or TV coverage. Shooting sports do better in the mainstream press abroad. In Switzerland, target shooting is the national pastime and a true passion. The winter biathlon is extremely popular in Europe. There were more people watching the biathlon in Lillehammer than any other event. The flag bearers of many European nations are shooting sports competitors. In the United States, however, shooting sports seldom get more than a footnote in coverage. The lack of American reporting on Olympic shooting events makes these competitors "invisible athletes" and another sad example of negative mainstream media bias against shooting sports.

Section One: Targeting the Olympics
The Olympic Games are the world's premier sporting event. In the most recent Summer Olympics, held in 1996 in Atlanta, 197 countries competed for medals in 27 sporting events and participated in numerous additional exhibition sports. The Olympic Charter sets out the ideals and the aims of the Olympic Movement. Under the Charter, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) "participates in actions to promote peace" and "dedicates its efforts to ensuring that...violence is banned." The IOC's goals include "the educational value of good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles" and "encouraging the establishment of a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity." As the Charter summarizes these noble aims: "The goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world." Now, the peaceful intent of the Olympic Movement is being challenged. The gun lobby—eager to expand the perception of "sporting" activities involving firearms—has launched an international effort to make combat shooting an Olympic sport. Boosters of combat shooting hope that association with the Olympics, under the euphemistic name of "practical" shooting, will legitimize and popularize both their competitions and the increasingly lethal weapons they use. By establishing combat shooting as an international sport, the gun lobby would also advance several of its most cherished goals. Olympic status for combat shooting would create new legal arguments in favor of non-sporting firearms, new opportunities to attract children into the gun culture, and new marketing opportunities for struggling gun makers.

Combat Shooting Targets the Olympic Games
Section Five: The Road to Olympic Recognition
The Olympic process is not a simple one. A place in the Games' opening ceremony is one of the most sought after prizes in all of athletics. At the Sydney Olympics in 2000, just 28 sports will compete with full Olympic medal status. The IOC also recognizes 25 additional non-medal sports. These "sports in waiting" hope that one day they may be granted full Olympic recognition and medal participation. As president of the IOC, Juan Antonio Samaranch, along with a panel of representatives from various countries, is the final arbiter on Olympic recognition. In fact, however, much of the influence over the decision lies with IOC Director of Sport Gilbert Felli, who advises Samaranch on such matters. Interviewed for this report, Felli was oblique in his assessment of the IPSC's application for admission of combat shooting, stating: "All sports applying for Olympic recognition begin with an equal chance. These people [the IPSC] have made application to the Committee, and we will accord them the same consideration as any other applicant." Felli's diplomatic caution offers little hint of the IOC's inclinations on the admission of combat shooting. Most "new" sports take seven years or more to complete the process of admission to formal Olympic recognition.

Question: What new Olympic sport would you like to see? My Answer: Tactical shooting. In other words, running around a course, ducking behind things, having targets pop up.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Submission Wrestling. Both are similar sports — in the former, the fighters wear a kimono, and in the latter they do not. When the fight starts, it looks similar to Judo or freestyle wrestling, in that both fighters try to take the other to the ground. Once on the ground, the real action begins — with both looking for a choke or lock in order to submit the other (or improving position to gain points). Very exciting sports.

COLLEGE STATION – Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but 4-H'er Kara Hellard prefers gold. The high school senior is aiming for the gold medal in the Junior Olympic Shooting Sports competition next month in Colorado Springs, Colo. In 2001 she won the bronze medal for third place at the competition and last year placed second and won the silver. "I had altitude sickness and lost eight pounds in five days," at last year's Junior Olympic Shooting Sports competition, Hellard said. "My goal this year is the gold." And after that, she's shooting for the top. "My goal is the 2008 Olympics," she said. "I want to win the gold medal." Hellard said the first time she fired a shotgun she was 12 years old.

By BRANT JAMES, Times Staff Writer Published August 8, 2004 ABOUT THE SPORT: An Olympic sport since 1896, shooting is comprised of 17 events spread among four disciplines - air rifle, shotgun, running target and pistol. There are 10 events for men and seven for women. In Shotgun, competitors fire at clay targets from stations. The winner is the one who shatters the most. Rifle competitors fire from 10 or 50 meters at stationary targets of ten concentric rings while standing, kneeling or prone. Pistol is the same as rifle, but with one hand. Those in running target fire an air rifle with a telescopic sight - they are not allowed in other events - at a moving paper target from 10 meters away. AMERICA'S BEST: Lance Bade, a 1996 bronze medalist, is posting personal bests right now and appears on track for another podium finish. He won his fifth consecutive trap national championship in July, hitting 25 straight targets in the final round. Matt Emmons, the 2002 world champion in prone rifle, was the first rifle shooter to qualify in three events (air, three-position, prone) in 40 years. Jason Parker missed a bronze medal by seven-tenths of a point in the 2000 Olympics but has qualified for air rifle. In 2003 at the World Cup, he set a final world record when he hit 599 of 600 in qualifying, 103.5 of 109 in the final for a 702.5 total. Kim Rhode could medal in the last women's double trap, which is being eliminated because of reduced competitors. A two-time medalist in her specialty event, Rhode will switch to skeet or single trap.
