After a year of negotiations between the ISSF and the leadership of the Commonwealth Games Federation, a solution that will finally resolve the issues surrounding the Commonwealth Games 2022 has been found.
Throughout 2019 the ISSF leadership proposed several options for the return of Shooting Sports to the 2022 Games program. Following a meeting in Munich in December 2019 between the ISSF President Vladimir Lisin and the Commonwealth Games Federation President Dame Louise Martin, it was agreed that India will commit to hosting shooting competitions. This decision is also fully supported by both the Government of India and the National Rifle Association of India.
Medals won in these competitions, will be counted in the medal standings of the countries participating in the Games.
World records, in events recognised by the ISSF, will be recorded both in qualifications and finals.
The ISSF will guarantee full compliance with the rules and regulations of the Shooting Sport and provide all the necessary technical support. In addition it was proposed to expand the competition program by including 4 Mixed Team events, 3 of which are already included in the program for Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
