From the ISSF website:

Almost 900 Rifle & Pistol athletes will be competing in Munich from the 16 through the 23 of June

“Numbers are incredible!” The ISSF Secretary General Franz Schreiber said about the entries recorded for the 2011 ISSF Rifle & Pistol World Cup in Munich, which is going to kick off the next 16th of June.

884 athletes coming from 85 nations have already registered to take part in the competition, for a total 1485 starts.

The competition, which will be conducted on the lines of the lines of the 1972 Olympic Shooting Range of Munich from the 16 through the 23 of June, is going to become a milestone on the qualification path to the 2012 London Games: a total of 24 Olympic Quota Places will indeed be awarded in the 10 rifle and pistol events.

“Munich’s is one of the largest venues of the world. But the numbers of this world cup are still impressive” Mr. Schreiber said.

“It’s a record, no doubt about it. Never before, a Rifle & Pistol World Cup Stage registered this participation”.

You Mean World Cup 2011 . Would be something else to go there even as a spectator. I'm sure one would "make bits of the Visa card" at the trade stands. mmmmm Rink Grip for the GSP Fitted to my hand in person. Oh heck. Just get the new SSP with the fitted Rink grip

I went to the world championships as a spectator last year. It is just beyond comprehension, and the range complex in Munich is just incredible. I'm going back out on friday helping out with our team and looking forward to it immensely. Needless to say, pennies have been put away to lay waste to those trade stalls. Fear not Kryten.

Those stalls are always dangerous things! I try to avoid if at all possible - I need to eat!

Need a new sling, and my glove has seen better days, and I might look at new frames, and... so on and so forth.

Well, the last time I went to Munich was 2001. I walked into the Anschutz tent.

I finally finished paying off the loans in 2007...

From the ISSF website:

ISSF Rifle & Pistol World Cup opened in Munich

890 athletes coming from 86 countries will compete in the 2011 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup Stage which kicked off today at the 1972 Olympic Shooting Range of Munich, through the 23rd of June.

A record number of 1482 starts (with athletes competing in multiple events), makes of this competition the biggest ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup Stage ever.

Athletes from all around the world will compete in the 10 Olympic events of Rifle and Pistol shooting, aiming at the 24 Olympic Quota Places to be awarded here. This is indeed one of the last chances to qualify for the 2012 London Games, before the continental championships.

The first medal matches, the 10m Air Rifle Men and Women finals, will take place tomorrow afternoon, starting from 2 PM (German time, GMT+1)

“Numbers are incredible!” The ISSF Secretary General Franz Schreiber said, commenting on the turnout of athletes of the fourth and last Rifle and Pistol World Cup Stage of the year.

“Munich’s is a big range, one of the best shooting sport venue of the world, but even here we are on the edge. It’s the first time that we record such a high participation in a world cup stage, since the series was launched in 1986.” Mr. Schreiber added.

The 2011 ISSF World Cup Series travelled from Sydney (AUS) to Changwon (KOR), passing through Fort Benning (USA) before landing here in Munich, where the last Rifle and Pistol Stage is conducted. The ISSF World Cup Series will then be closed in September, with the Rifle and Pistol World Cup Final taking place in Wroclaw, Poland.

10m Mens Air Rifle is underway at the moment, 130 entries, Jozef Gonci in the lead with 599, nearest finished competitor is on 598 and only one other shooter has a realistic chance of matching him.

Ray shot well, matched his domestic performance from this weekend and broke the Irish record for a score in an ISSF match of 583 (which he set in Intershoot in February)

Ha! And in the time it took to write that up, Zhu shot a 599 and equalled Gonci's score
(Though he loses the first place on the number of inner tens shot)

edit: Hm, that's wierd, Zhu's not in the final ranklist. Some wierd glitch of some kind maybe. Live results showed him shooting a 599 and maybe even beating Gonci on countback...

Sparks Category Moderator

Yeah, it looks like the ranklist is for relay one only (too many shooters for a 100-firing point airgun hall! Feck!). Top eight going on to the finals from both relays are:

edit: Scrap the bottom there there, they're holding a shoot off. Three places in the finals, 9 shooters on 596 in a shoot-off for the three places...
