The Indian pistol and rifle shooters will be back in action for the first time since their horror run at the Tokyo Olympics, starting today. A total of 8 Indian shooters will be in contention to bag the podium spots from 3rd to 8th November 2021 in Wroclaw, Poland.

What is ISSF President's Cup?

The President's Cup is an invitational tournament conducted by the ISSF wherein the world's top 12 shooters in each category face-off for the ultimate glory.

This edition of the President's Cup is a highly anticipated one as the event will be conducted with the rules being slightly tweaked from what we saw at the Tokyo Olympics.

What are the new rules in President's Cup?

First and foremost, we might not see Saurabh Chaudhary and Manu Bhaker pair up for the Mixed 10m Air Pistol event. Why? Because according to new rules, the pairs will be randomly drawn for the event with players from different countries partnering to finish on the podium. This rule will be applied in the Mixed Rifle section as well.

In the individual 10m Air Pistol and 10m Air Rifle events, the top eight won't directly go into the final after the qualification round. Instead they will fight out in two groups of four players each in a semifinal. Those two who top their respective groups will advance to the final. There will also be a change in scoring system for these events.

On the other hand, in the 50m 3 positions event there will now be two qualification phases instead of one. Compared to the existing rule where top 8 made it to the final, now 10 shooters will make it to the second qualification phase and then 8 will move to the final.

Which events will the Indians be in action?

The 8 Indians will be in action across five different events in Wroclaw.
