Shooting has been a part of the Paralympic Games since 1976 in Toronto and is open to all athletes who have a physical impairment.
There are two categories of competition – wheelchair and standing – and athletes compete in rifle and pistol events from distances of 10m, 25m and 50m in men’s, women’s and mixed competitions.
Shooting employs a classification system that allows athletes from different disability classes to compete in the same event.
