Captain/Coach/Manager/Shooting (Call for nomination still open)



An exciting two weeks in shooting at the World Championships for Target Rifle held in Wellington in NZ has now been completed. Three hundred men and women from around the world competing for the title of WORLD CHAMPION. 

This competition is held every four years it is hotly contested. Four years ago, it was Ben Emms from Lyndhurst NSW who became World Champion. 

This year it was an Australian again with Steve Negus from Canberra taking out the crown by one point from young Mitch Bailey from Sydney. 

Australia was dominant across all the competitions which is testament to the training, commitment and skill of the team.  The results were:

  • NZ Championships – Jim Bailey, Sydney,
  • World Under 21 Champion – L Rettmer, USA.  2nd Nicholas Sims, Sydney,
  • World Under 25 Champion – Chris Schwebel, Sydney,
  • World Veteran Champion – Mark Buchanan, Sydney,

  • World U21 Team – 1st NZ, 2nd Australia,
  • World U25 Team – Australia,

The last time Australia won this was 1988!
