“The website will be an important source of information for anyone with an interest in shooting and will be updated regularly with news, features, blogs, athlete biographies and competition information."
IPC Shooting, the international federation for shooting para-sport, has launched a brand new website for the 2014 IPC Shooting World Championships, due to take place from 17-26 July in Suhl Germany.
The site is jam-packed with information and news for fans, teams and the media and will be the one-stop-shop for all things related to the Championships from now and throughout the competition.
IPC Director of Media and Communications Craig Spence said:
“The website will be an important source of information for anyone with an interest in shooting and will be updated regularly with news, features, blogs, athlete biographies and competition information.
“I expect there will be a keen interest in the World Championships following on from the success of the European Championships in Alicante, Spain, in 2013 and as athletes progress along their road to Rio 2016.”
German athletes including Natascha Hiltrop, R3 (mixed 10m air rifle prone SH1) European Champion, and www.paralympic.org athlete blogger Leo Rupp are expected to compete in Suhl alongside 250 athletes from 45 countries.
Suhl’s association with shooting is built into the very fabric of the town and Thuringian region, with various weapons manufacturers, museums and visitor attractions related to the sport.
At a recent site visit to the venue and town, representatives of IPC Shooting were greeted by the Burgermeister (Mayor) and members of the Local Organising Committee and visited the shooting range, competition hotel as well as other venues within the city..
