I arrived in Toronto late Thursday to some light snow and cold weather. Really cold compared to Vancouver. ;)
The nice thing about the Canadian Airgun Grand Prix is it's shot in the conference area of the hotel so there isn't much need to go outside.
I shot this morning on Relay 3 position 23 and got into a good rhythm and shot my way to a new personal best of 571 / 600. That's 95.17% and a healthy 8 points ahead of the Olympic Minimum Qualification Score of 563 / 600. A solid improvement over my 2010 average of the low 560s (93.50%).
Here is how my scores break down:
Started out slow but around the 6th shot I started to get my shots closer to the 10 ring. Between shots 39 and 59 I shot 17 10's (including ten 10's in a row between shots 39 and 48).
This score currently puts me in the lead, but there are still quite a few shooters left to shoot today including shooters from USA and a team from Trinidad.
I shoot again tomorrow morning at 8am EST and then Men's 10M Finals are scheduled for the afternoon.
More updates to come!
