Vadovicova and Skelhon will meet in R3 (mixed 10m air rifle prone SH1) and R6 (mixed 50m rifle prone SH1) at the competition in Georgia which will feature around 60 athletes from nearly 20 countries.
R6 European champion Skelhon and double Euros gold medallist Vadovicova have both claimed multiple World Cup podiums in 2014, showing their match-up is as close as it can get heading into the World Championships in Suhl, Germany, from 18-26 July. Vadovicova has the edge on Skelhon however, with a total of three wins compared to Skelhon’s one.
Israel’s Doron Shaziri finished in bronze medal position in R6 behind Skelhon at the 2013 IPC Shooting European Championships in Alicante, Spain, and will also be taking aim at Fort Benning.
With less than 50 days to go until Suhl 2014 World Championships, other shooters to look out for include Hungary's European pistol bronze medallist Krisztina David who has been in the ascendancy since debuting in 2010.
David, who beat Macedonian Paralympic champion Olivera Nakovska-Bikova at the Euros in October 2013, set a new P2 (women’s 10m air pistol SH1) finals world record at the World Cup in Great Britain in February and will be competing in two other pistol events in Fort Benning.
Lining up for the host nation are a team of 16 shooters which includes John Joss III, a serving soldier in the US Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) who is only in his second season of competitive shooting. A series of top 10 finishes this year, to equal those from 2013, shows encouraging signs from the 31-year-old.
In the SH2 classification, Australian Jason Maroney will be hoping to continue his early success in R5 (mixed 10m rifle prone SH2) and R4 (mixed 10m air rifle standing SH2) from Great Britain. Maroney, who is famous amongst the shooting community for having his own shooting range on his farm in Australia, has already based himself in Europe in preparation for the World Championships.
The 2014 IPC Shooting World Cup in Fort Benning, USA, runs from 3-7 June and is the last World Cup before the 2014 IPC Shooting World Championships welcome around 250 athletes from 50 countries to the historic German shooting town of Suhl from 18-26 July.
