World Cup BRASIL
I am here to compete in the ISSF World Cup event with the prize on offer, other than the glory, is an Olymppic Quata place for Beijing 2008. (we hope)
This is my first full day here and already I have had a shoot this morning and Passed through equipment control. Th only things I will say is that some work needs to be done on fitness when I get back!! From the shooting point of view, it was good!!! The last 20 shots I did were all good 10's, so I'm feeling happy.
I will take some photos today and uplaod them when I'm next at the range, as thats where I can get the free access to the net.
Hope your all having fun back home in the cold, misserable British weather (it did rain last night here though!!!) and I'll communicate again soon.
For up to date (I think) of the results and finals check out:
