Becoming an Olympian/ Paralympian Individual selection for


the Olympic Games will come via two different paths, either by the Olympic Points System or Olympic Team Selection Competi- tions. A point system will be used again giving ath- letes the opportunity to earn points by virtue of their fi n- ishes at 2015 World Cups,


World Champs, World Cup Final and designated Selec- tion Competitions. After the 2015 World Cup Final, the athlete with the most points, and thus the highest ranked in each event, who meets or exceeds the point threshold of 25 points (Rifl e/Pistol) and 30 points (Shotgun) and has earned at least one medal at a 2015 World Cup competition, World Cup Finals (rifl e & pistol only) or World Championships (shotgun only), will be nomi- nated to the Olympic Team depending upon quotas earned in each event.


Olympic Team Selection Competitions will consist


of multiple courses of fi re as defi ned in the table above. If there are no Olympic Points System winners in an event, all team members will be determined by the Olympic Team Selection Competi- tions up to the number of quotas earned in the respec- tive event.
