  • Description

    A 27 member Chinese team led by the Chairman of the Chinese Shooting Association is currently in Japan on a three-day goodwill visit.

    SYNOPSIS: The first day's competition began on Friday (12 November) at the Asaka Olympic Shooting Range near Tokyo. There were 29 members in the Japanese team. Before competition started there was a courtesy exchange of pennants between the two teams.

    Chinese teams have won an impressive array of victories in Asian competition during the past three years.

    Japan's Shiraishi Makoto.

    He scored 48 points out of a possible 50 with five shots fired within the allotted eight seconds. The target is 25 metres (27 yards) away from the contestants. China's Chan Run-long.

    A perfect score of 50 points. Among the Chinese team are five men and three women of the People's Liberation Army. After the other event -- rifle shooting from a prone position -- the Chinese and Japanese teams shared the honours with four wins each.
