The second ISSF World Cup stage of the 2016 season is taking place in Rio de Janeiro (BRA), where the Games of the XXXI Olympiad will take place in four months. This stage will distribute fifteen Gold medals, besides serving as a test event for the Olympic Shooting venues inside the Deodoro Park.

The Deodoro Park is one of the three clusters that will host the 28 Olympic sports from the 5th to the 21st of August. The range, opened in 2007, already hosted the Shooting events of the 2007 Pan-American Games, as well as an ISSF World Cup stage in Rifle/Pistol events in 2008.

 661 athletes are participating in the World Cup stage, representing 88 different countries from all over the world, and piling up almost a thousand starts.

Best of luck to all the Shooting Australia athletes participating in this stage and getting an early taste of Rio.
