I’m very excited to share that this last week I was selected to be a member of the US team for the 2018 International Shooting Sports Federation World Championships in Changwon, South Korea this September.  I am one of ten selected by USA Shooting to make up the US Men’s Rifle Team for this year’s World Championship. I am honored to be a part of a team filled with world class shooting athletes. I will be competing in two 300 meter rifle events for Team USA: Men’s 3x40  and Standard Rifle .

The ISSF World Championships have been held with regularity since 1897, except during the World Wars. They are currently held once every four years, offset two years to the summer Olympics, and will host approximately 4500 shooting athletes from all over the world to compete in a variety of international rifle, pistol, and shotgun events. The ISSF World Championships offer a large field of events and is only second in prestige to the Olympics.

In the USA, our international shooting governing body, USA Shooting, does not offer travel support to athletes competing in non-Olympic international events like 300 meter rifle. Despite being one of the two premier forms of internationally contested centerfire rifle competition (ICFRA Fullbore is the other), there is no organization in the US offering support to 300 meter rifle athletes.

With that being said, if you would like to help fund me as a non-sponsored civilian athlete representing the USA at the ISSF World Shooting Championships, please donate to my Go Fund Me. Having financial support for travel, lodging, and consumables will allow me to focus on training this summer and worry less about the details. It will help me put my best foot forward in my first major international competition.  Thank you in advance for any support, financial or moral, and please share this with anyone you may know that would be willing offer support. Please wish me and all of my teammates well in Changwon this fall.

Best Regards,

Brad Yliniemi
