WORLD SILVER MEDALISTS

Australian F/TR shooters

QRA members comprised half the 8-shooters in the Australian team which won a silver medal at the World F Class championships in Canada.

The F Target Rifle team was narrowly beaten by the United States which won by six points 3400 to 3394.

The world titles which have just wrapped up at the Connaught Range in Ottawa attracted more than 600 competitors.
