Well done to all shooters, you've all worked very hard which shows through the scores that were presented towards selection. I believe that we have our best shooters and strong teams selected to bring back medals.
Paratrap Team Manager at the Disabled Shooting Group, Julie Sperling, said: “We are very proud to represent GB on the world stage. We have a very strong team and I’m sure that our involvement in the IPC World Cup will attract new shooters and hopefully inspire them to have a go.”
British Shooting Chief Executive, Hamish McInnes, said: “Realising IPC World Cup status is a fitting tribute for this group of athletes.
“IPC recognition is a vital next step on the road to our vision of having Para Trap Paralympic Games inclusion in the future.”
