Local fullbore marksmen will today engage in a Record Shoot at the GDF Ranges at Yarrowkabra ahead of the National Championships which will shoot off on Sunday next at the same venue.
Today’s shoot will see competition at the 300, 600 and 1000 yards ranges as the shooters seek to get as much practice ahead of what is anticipated to be a keenly contested national competition in the X and O classes.
Defending X-Class champion Lennox Braithwaite who is also the reigning Caribbean Individual champion will have to be in the best shape to stave off expected challenges from National Captain Mahendra Persaud and Ransford Goodluck not overlooking Leo Romalho, Dylan Fields, Sherwin Felicien and Ryan Sampson.
Peter Persaud is the reigning O-Class champion. All the above named shooters were part of the West Indies team that contested the World Championships that was held in Ohio, USA in August where the West Indies for the first time did not end at the bottom of the table, they finished ahead of Germany in the Palma Match, the pinnacle of world shooting.
Braithwaite and Persaud did well in the National Rifle Association of America, World Individuals as well as the Canadian National championships and will be seeking to replicate that form from next week Sunday when the National championships shoots off.
But for now, the focus will be on today’s Record Shot.
