Good start by the Indian Juniors in the championships. Hope we land with few quota would be cherry in the cake....

I am very excited by the success of shooting programs ........ we have been shooting close to china in a couple of world cups and at the asian games recently ............Our commonwealth performance was awesome ............ The world championship would tell us exactly where we stand as a team - are finally reaching a level as a team where we claim true place amongst the top nations in this sport 

 

Analysis - 2014 World Champ medal count  -

 

( BAND 1 ) -------- China 44, Russia 40 

( BAND 2 ) -------- Germany 25, Italy 25, US 17, SK -14

India - 2 

 

Analysis - 2010 - World Champ medal count  -

 

( BAND 1 ) -------- China 52, Russia 46 

( BAND 2 ) -------- Germany 21, Italy 15, US 24, SK -17

India - 3 

 

If we need to be a band 2 nation at least we need to get between 15-20 medals ......the current team can do this  I feel ( Am I optimistic - I am basing this on the junior world cups or asiads) or at least reach towards 6-10 medals  ........ the start has been good

In 2 of the 3 events good results for Germany:

If Robin Walter wouldnt have completely messed up his last series in mens junior 50 m pistol, he would have probably won silver. Seems like Germany finally has a great talent in this event. In mixed air pistol i had no expectations, so a 5th place is pretty good. Mixed air rifle was a bit disappointing, but i am sure that Reitz/Reitz will qualify later on.

Also great to see that Germany finally has a great talent in women's trap who is in 2nd place after the first day of qualification.

Shooting mixed events are probably the saddest example of mixed events forced into the Olympic program.

 

Absolutely ridiculous, especially the part about nations being allowed to enter two mixed teams... But who cares, as long as big nations can still earn 2 medals per event at the Olympics. :facepalm::rofl:

Even more, until now I didn't even realise there are only going to be 4 teams in those mixed events. They axed 50m Pistol and Double Trap for that? :lol:

That said, Romania, Spain and Serbia had the chance and they wasted it. Countries like China and Russia are always strong when it matters most.

There will be much more than 4 teams in the mixed events (2 teams qualified directly + every country that can form a team with shooters qualified in individual events, max. 2 teams per country)

Yes, and there is no way that those tiny countries of China and Russia would have qualified anyway, so good thinking from ISSF.
