These matches will be a direct selection match to select the athletes that will attend the Cairo World Cup in February 2022. The top three finishers in each discipline at this match will be selected to attend the Cairo World Cup if their average score from the 3 qualification match days meets or exceeds the PSS average outlined in selection procedures. Additionally, all qualification scores from this match will contribute to the PSS averages for national team selection.
Competitors in the rifle match will shoot 3×20 courses of fire for the match, as this is the anticipated match format for the rest of the quad according to the ISSF.
The schedules for the matches are outlined below. Match programs, detailed match schedules, and selection procedures will follow.
Currently, the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) has a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in place for people utilizing the OPTC, including athletes and staff who are planning to participate at a camp, activity or event hosted by an internally managed sport, which pertains to these selection matches.
