Shooting dates at Rio 2016 Olympic Games announced

DSCF0295 (2)With less than 500 days to go until Rio 2016, the Organising Committee released the calendar of sports and events taking place at the Olympics between Friday 5 and Sunday 21 August next year.

The shooting sports will take centre stage during the first half of the Olympic Games, and competitors will shoot at the National Shooting Centre in Deodoro, a site that is currently being developed, on 6-14 August 2016.

Deodoro Olympic Park is based in the eastern part of Rio de Janeiro and will be the Olympics’ second-largest cluster site, which also houses some existing facilities from the Pan-American Games in 2007. However, the shooting centre is a new development and the artist’s impression can be seen below.
