ISSF has made some significant changes to the competition formats: https://www.issf-sports.org/news.ashx?newsid=3680

At least the dumb one-by-one eliminations seem to be gone.

 

Still, you know a sport is in a bad place when they have to change competition formats every couple of years. :wacko:

it looks that in the shotgun events we're back to the multiple phase competitions as it was in the 2016 Olympic cycle (with a slight diversification of the semifinal round, this time with 2 groups of 4 instead of the traditional 6-man single heat, a fully different system for the Final round, basically the same of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic cycle, even if with only 4 shooters rather than 6)...

in practice, it's a combination of the last 2 kind of format, taking the worse from each one...:yikes: :facepalm: :wall:

OMG!!! the new format for air pistol and rifle! :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

 

I can't believe they really approved such kind of farce!

 

a lot of dead time, not immediately understandable scores, cerebral format overall...

 

this would finally kill even the most hadcore fan, making the medal stages just unwatchable (it's also unfair to the shooters, tbh, but we're talking of the attractiveness of the new format for the audience and will take care of the remaing issues in another session)...:cry: :hairpull:
