Back to CAAWS September 18, 2000 Nattrass's hopes to continue fall
a little short of the goal By TERRY JONES Sun Media
SYDNEY For a while, it looked as if Susan Nattrass was about to write a story of stories at the Olympic Games.
Forty-nine years old and responsible for getting women their own trap shooting event at the Olympics, she was leading and going for gold.
After 25 shots, she had hit 23.
But just as Nattrass dared dream the impossible dream, it all disintegrated like the clay pigeons around her.
She missed four of her next nine and hit only 18 of 25 on her second set. Nattrass finished with 63 of 75 - two misses too many to make the six-woman final. She ended up ninth overall.
The Edmonton shooter, who at the 1976 Olympics broke the gender barrier as the first woman to compete with the men, broke the first 15 targets of the final set. But then she missed two of the next three and was history.

Shooting Target shooting with firearms dates back to the fourteenth century, but the weapons of that time were undependable and inaccurate. Over the centuries, weapons and ammunition have steadily improved, resulting in higher standards of accuracy and reliability. Target shooting was so popular in the nineteenth century that a shooting competition was included in the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Click a link to

The Summer Paralympic Games are the ultimate competition for world class elite athletes with a disability and as such are linked to the Olympic Celebration each quadrennium. The Paralympic Games, in terms of complexity, duration and the number of competitors, are second only to the Olympic Games.
The fundamental philosophy guiding the Paralympic movement is that athletes with disabilities should have opportunities to pursue their goals in sport equivalent to those of non-disabled athletes. Athletes who compete in the Paralympics set their sights on the dream of winning a gold medal, are committed to strenuous training regimes and meet strict qualifying standards to be selected to their national team. The Paralympic Games represent a commitment to excellence that allows elite athletes to achieve their personal best. The Paralympic Games exemplify the Olympic ideal of participation and sportsmanship.

    • Outdoor Target Archery Indoor Target Archery Field Archery Run-Archery Clout Archery Flight Archery Archery Biathlon is practiced under IBU now
    There are three types of bows used in archery competitions:
    • Recurve bow

    • The longbow is the most basic of bows. It is usually shaped from a single piece of timber and the grip is typically made from a strip of leather bound around the bow. A small shelf is cut into the side of the bow for the arrow to rest on. The tip of the arrow is kept at full draw to shoot.
    • Compound bow

    • A compound bow has pulleys set at the end of its limbs. The purpose of these pulleys is to make the cocked, ready to fire position of the bow easier to hold.

    What is UIT Shooting?
    The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF), formerly the UIT is the governing body of the International Amateur Shooting Sports at international and world-wide levels of competition, including World Championships and the Olympic Games. USA Shooting is the national governing body for ISSF-style shooting in the United States by authority of the US Olympic Committee and the ISSF. In the Olympics, the shooting sports continue to draw the third-greatest number of countries and impose participation quotas to keep competitors to a manageable number. One of the greatest surges in participation came in 1984, when separate women's events were first added to the Olympic program. The ISSF recognizes a huge number of different shooting events in rifle, pistol, shotgun, and running target though only 17 events are featured in the Olympic Games. While there are great differences between disciplines, all rely on stamina and concentration to successfully shoot so many rounds with such precision. The sport's reliance on such skills makes shooting a sport in which size and age, unlike athletics or gymnastics, have little bearing on success. Oscar Swahn from Sweden was an amazing 72 years old in 1920 when he won his last shooting medal to become the oldest medalist in the history of the Games. The youngest shooter to win a medal was 16 year old Konstantin Lukashik from Belarus, who won a Gold medal in 1992. It is not uncommon for Olympic shooters to have been training for more than 20 years. Due to the competitive longevity of the sport, several shooters have competed in four or more Games.

    The idea of firing weapons at a target, live or otherwise, dates back to early man, though the gun, of course, was not seen until much later. Records of spear-throwing contests exist among the archives of the ancient Greeks, Indians, Persians, Celts and Germanic and Slavic tribes. In the 10th century archery and spear-throwing had given way to a device developed by the Swiss called the halberd, which combined a spear, an axe and hook in a long mechanism that was held almost like a modern-day gun. By the 14th century, the Germans had developed the halberd concept to create the wheel-lock musket and shooting clubs started to emerge. The musket proper, which used gunpowder to blow out bullets along a tube, evolved from the court of King Charles VIII of France, who wanted flexibility on the battlefield. The more gunpowder, the fiercer the shot, but the musket was a clumsy and inaccurate shot.
