Lennox Braithwaite and Peter Persaud will be the men to beat heading into the final day of the
Guyana National Rifle Association (GNRA) yearend Fullbore National Short Range championships today at the Guyana Defence Force, Timehri Rifle Ranges.
Braithwaite, the best Individual Shot in the Caribbean for the past three years, looks set to unseat National Champion Ransford Goodluck following another impeccable day yesterday, displaying excellent sight, being the only shooter to record perfect scores at the 300, 500 and 600 yards ranges.
National Captain Mahendra Persaud was neck and neck with Braithwaite after the first two ranges with perfect scores of 35s but dropped two shots at the final range. Other X-Class shooters recording perfect scores of 35 on the day were Goodluck at the 600 ranges and Leo Ramalho at 500.
Peter Persaud, who by virtue of his top place after the first day among the O-Class shooters was elevated to shoot with the X-Class (big boys), vindicated his promotion with an almost near perfect day also, dropping just three points at the 600 yards range following perfect shoots at the 300 and 500 yards ranges.
The other shooter in this class to record a perfect score of 35 was Sherwin Felicien at the 500 yards range.
Braithwaite and Peter Persaud will start today’s final day as favorites to win the title of National champions barring a bad day at the office. Whatever happens, a keen day of shooting is anticipated with action again set for the 300, 500 and 600 yards ranges with 2 sighting shots and 10 shots allowed at each.
