sport events, athletes with physical impairments compete in both rifle and
pistol events. In this precision sport, athletes use focus and controlled breathing to reduce
their heart rates and improve stability and high performance.

Athletes compete in events from distances of 10m, 25m and 50m in men’s, women’s and mixed competition events.
