The 2014 Championship was a qualifying event for the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio, Brazil. It was the first individual sport to assign competitors to the 2016 Games with 28 countries winning a total of 63 spots. South Korea were the most successful nation, claiming 11 places while China, Norway, Russia and Ukraine took four a-piece.[1]

This proved to be the final event branded as the "IPC Shooting World Championships". On 30 November 2016, the IPC, which serves as the international federation for 10 disability sports, including shooting, adopted the "World Para" brand for all 10 sports. The world championship events in all of these sports were immediately rebranded as "World Para" championships. At the same time, the IPC changed the official name of the sport to "shooting Para sport". Accordingly, future IPC shooting championships will be known as "World Shooting Para Sport Championships".[2]

ClassificationEdit

Paralympic shooters were classified according to the extent of their disability. The classification system allowed shooters to compete against others with a similar level of function.

Shooting classifications are:

  • SH1 - competitors who do not need a shooting stand
  • SH2 - competitors who use a shooting stand to support the firearm's weight

World recordsEdit

At the championships eight new world records were set and one was equaled. [3]
