Rio 2016 preview: P1 (men’s 10m air pistol SH1)


For an athlete that only made his debut in 2015, Ukraine’s Oleksii Denysiuk has made quite an impact on the international shooting Para sport circuit.

The P1 (men’s 10m air pistol SH1) is his most successful event, with five medals from IPC Shooting World Cups including two golds.

He is also the holder of the finals world record, having set a new score of 200.5 in 2015.

His main rivals will be South Korea’s qualification world record holder Chul Park. At London 2012, another South Korean, Seakyun Park left as the champion.

Turkey’s Cevat Karagol also finished on the podium at the World Championships.
