Olympic training center "Nur-Sultan": Bullet shooting
Dear sports fans, we continue to acquaint you with the sports of our Center. Today we present you for reading information about bullet shooting.
Shooting as a sport is perhaps the oldest sporting event. Its roots go back to the holding of tournaments with marksmanship with a bow or crossbow. Since the invention of firearms by man, marksmanship competitions have been held with muskets and rifles. With the invention of rifled weapons, shooting with bullets began to turn into an independent sports discipline.
From the middle of the 15th century, aiming tournaments began to be held in Switzerland. Later they developed into national championships in shooting from different types of weapons (guns, pistols). The first rifle shooting competition took place in 1824. In the 19th century, similar competitions and championships began to be organized throughout European countries.
At the end of the 19th century, shooting became widespread throughout the world. At the suggestion of Pierre de Coubertin, who was the 7-time champion of the French Republic in pistol shooting, rifle and pistol shooting was included in the program of the first modern Olympics in 1896. During the Olympiad, 5 sets of medals were played in this discipline. Since then, sport shooting has invariably been included in the program of all Olympic Games, except for the 1924 and 1928 Olympics.
For the first time, the World Shooting Championship was held in 1897 in Lyon. The number of its participants included only 25 people.
1907 was the founding year of the International Union of Shooting Federations. Initially, it included only 8 participating countries. After 14 years, this organization was renamed the International Shooting Union, and after another 26 years it turned into the International Union of Shooting Sports.
