NEW FORMATS OF THE TEAM EVENTS WILL BE INTRODUCED AT THE 2017 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
|After the successful introduction of the Mixed Team events in the program of the 2015 European Games and the 2016 European Championships, the ESC is going to make another input in the development of the shooting sport.|
New formats of the Team events in Skeet and Trap Women’s category will be introduced at the 2017 European Championships so that the winners of the competitions are going to be determined not by scoring calculation of three individual results after the Qualification stage, but after the quarter final, semi final and medal match stages of the top 8 ranked teams after the Qualification.
The new format of the Skeet Women and Trap Women Team events can be found here.
During the 2017 European Championship 10m in Maribor, Slovenia, the winners of all Team events are still going to be determined according to the existing rules. The new format is going only to be tested in Pistol Women Juniors, Rifle Men Juniors, Rifle Women and Pistol Men. It is because the Schedule of the Championship has been approved long ago and it does not have "windows" for additional competitions. In case the athletes and the spectators like the new format for Air Pistol and Air Rifle Team events, this may become "official" starting from the 2018 European Championship 10m.
