Shooting: Conclusion of New Delhi World Cup Finalizes Olympic World Rankings

The final event, the 2021 New Delhi World Cup which contributed points towards the Olympic World Ranking in shooting has concluded. The highest ranked eligible athlete in each of the individual events qualified a spot to compete at the games.

Poland was able to obtain two quotas thanks to the rankings of Aneta Stankiewicz (women’s 10m air rifle) and Sandra Bernal (women’s trap) while ten other nations qualified a single athlete. The list is highlighted by 2016 Olympic silver medalist Felipe Wu of Brazil (men’s 10m air pistol) while other major medalists include 2017 European Championship silver medalist Peeter Olesk of Estonia (men’s 25m rapid fire pistol) and 2018 Commonwealth Games silver medalist Amber Hill of Great Britain (women’s skeet).

Italy will get the option to compete in mixed team trap thanks to Mauro De Filippis (men’s trap) while South Korea will be able to compete in the mixed team 10m air rifle as Nae Tae-yun qualified in the men’s 10m air rifle. The remaining qualifiers include Argentina’s Federico Gil (men’s skeet), Belarus’ Viktoria Chaika (women’s 10m air pistol), Denmark’s Steffen Olsen (men’s 50m rifle 3 positions), Latvia’s Agate Rasmane (women’s 25m pistol) and Slovenia’s Ziva Dvorsak (women’s 50m rifle 3 positions).

Quotas won by European athletes are provisional as the quotas to be determined at the 2021 European Championships have yet to be decided and that event holds a higher priority. Should the nation qualify in that event then the world ranking quota will be reallocated to the next highest ranked eligible athlete.

Update: Amber Hill qualified at the 2021 European Championships, therefore the World Ranking quota will go to Kazakhstan’s Zoya Kravchenko. Additionally, Mauro De Filippis also qualified, therefore the men’s trap quota will go to Germany’s Andreas Low.
