From July 27th – August 24th Shooting Australia will be adhering to the AOC “Blackout” period.
The Olympic Charter states that no competitor, coach, trainer or official who participates in the Olympic Games may allow his person, name, picture or sports performances to be used for advertising purposes during the Olympic Games from 27 July 2016 until 24 August 2016. Referred to as the “Blackout” period! The IOC/AOC is the owner of the design of the Olympic symbol, any registered Olympic design that was registered for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and their associated expressions. There are opportunities available to Shooting Australia during this time but we apologies that we may not be the primary source for content about the Shooting Athletes competing in Rio. We will share the content that we receive from the Olympic “Rights Holders” but suggest you keep an eye on the AOC website and the ISSF website for updates.
