Sports fans will see more Asian athletes in the shooting events at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris after the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) has increased quotas for Asian countries and territories, the Asian Shooting Confederation (ASC) has announced.
ASC announced on its Facebook page that the ISSF sent a letter informing them that the number of quotas will increase from 38 to 48 for Paris 2024.
"The Asian Shooting Confederation expresses its gratitude to the ISSF and all members who contributed to this great achievement," the ASC stated.
The ISSF council met in Wroclaw, Polish, to explain the qualification system for the Paris 2024 Games. The council also discussed the shooting events' structure for the 2022-2024 period and the development fund to help developing shooting nations compete internationally and gain quotas for the Olympics.
Indonesia could benefit from the program to get more quotas for the Paris Games. In the Tokyo Games, Indonesia only sent one athlete, Vidya Rafika, who competed in two events - air rifle 10m and 50m rifle three positions.
