The Northern Ireland Federation of Shooting Sports (NIFSS), hosted the Commonwealth Shooting Federation (European Division) Championships in various locations around the Province from 12th - 15th September 2018. We funded the Team expenses because we believe that with the possible absence of Shooting from the 2022 Commonwealth Games, it is important to support CSF(ED) as a crucial part of keeping Shooting involved in Commonwealth sport. The athletes had to self-fund their attendance but the increase in Membership fees over the past two years allowed us to make a substantial contribution to their expenses.
On this occasion the team consisted mainly of our younger athletes who are members of our Rifle and Pistol Academies who we gave the opportunity to represent England in an International competition for experience and their development purposes. Keith Simmons, (not exactly a Junior!), acted as the Team Manager.
Our Team is as follows:
Shelley Moss - Standard Pistol, 25m Pistol, 10m Air Pistol
Imogen Moss - Standard Pistol, 25m Pistol, 10m Air Pistol
Matthew Reed - 10m Air Pistol, 50m Pistol
Ruth Mwandumba - 10m Air Rifle, 50m Prone Rifle
Kim Tzabach - 3P Rifle, 10m Air Rifle
