Lennox Braithwaite and Peter Pesaud are defending X and O Class champs
Following an exciting year of shooting at the world level where the West Indies team made up of eight Guyanese in the 16-member lineup finished ahead of Germany at the World championships in Ohio, USA,
attention will now turn to the local scene.
The Guyana National Rifle Association national championships is set and ready to shoot off tomorrow at the Guyana Defence Force Timehri Ranges where about 12 of the local marksmen are expected to take on each other for the title as the best in the land of Many waters.
Defending X-Class champion, Lennox Braithwaite who is also the reigning Caribbean Individual champion is currently in ripping form and it will be a tough task to dethrone him. The likes of Ransford Goodluck, National Captain Mahendra Persaud who is not 100% certain of participating as is Leo Romalho are some of the names that can threaten Braithwaite including Dylan Fields.
However, Braithwaite who also enjoyed a fine time at the Canadian National Championships after the worlds will start as the man to beat. Mahandra Persaud also enjoyed a good run of form in Canada and at the USA Nationals along with Braithwaite in August.
Reigning O-Class champion Peter Persaud will have a huge task on his hands and will find a tough opponent in Terry Staurt, Sherwin Felicien and Ryan Sampson who will also be gunning to win this category.
Captain Persaud has disclosed that all systems are in place for what is anticipated to be three Sundays of exciting rivalry.
