The 10m mixed event is a sure fire loser. It is just as bad as the old 25m Sport Pistol final. Nobody knew what was happening. I've heard shooters tell the CRO - "Just tell me when to shoot and when to stop shooting. I've got no idea what is happening." The spectators are even at more of a loss to understand the event. And the ultimate insult is to be put on a target you have not yet shot on and have to shoot the most important shots of the match. These are electronic targets. The center of the target is not always the same from one target to another.

What a complete waste of resources and time. Legend has it that this event in the last world cup took an hour and 45 minutes. People were walking out bored to death. No way is this making the sport more media friendly.

They did the right thing getting rid of this format in 25m Sport Pistol and in Trap. The 25m Sport Pistol final is now a great event to watch. This team thing is just not going to take off.

That's my opinion - Yours may differ.

From what I`ve read, it´s totally possible that the team which classified third in one semifinal group (thus being eliminated) scores more points than the one that classified first in the other group................ That's the spirit, IOC and ISSF!!!

I hope they don't forget to include a talent show for each shooter to exhibit his/her ability at such events as water-filled glass music making, bathsuit pageant, arm wrestling (those could be mixed also, times are changing fast), etc.

And for those sacks of s__t we left behind FP and PR?

Undoubtedly, age is taking its toll on the members of ISSF gerontocracy.

First reaction is... Yawn!

But if there's an Olympic medal at stake, rich countries will sink money into it and therefore it will attract shooters and the ISSF can declare it a success!

Stupid. I guess this proves how out of touch leadership has become.

So true!!!!
This is a point that I have to continually get into my shooters heads is that they ARE NOT shooting for the center of the black, but they are shooting for where the target thinks the zero point of the sensors are. Absolutely moving from one target to another requires a sighting adjustment. No two are the same, and for sure not even close if you are shooting for tenths.

Changing positions in the medal rounds w/o sighters essentially makes these rounds completely random. Might as well flip coins ... much faster.

These folks should know better and, for the good of the sport, should just retire.
