2011 Canadian Airgun Grand Prix Results

Here are the complete results for the 2011 Canadian Airgun Grand Prix.

2011 Canadian Airgun Grand Prix Results

Finished as Top Canadian

After my new high score of 571 / 600 on Saturday I shot a 567 / 600 for a combined score of 1138. This put me in 2nd behind Trinidad and Tobago's Roger Daniel who shot 574 and 577 for a combined score of 1151. Roger's score put him 13 points ahead of me going into Finals, which is too far ahead to be able to catch up.

I'm pretty happy with my results this weekend finishing as the top Canadian shooter and second to Roger who has been to the last two Olympic Games in Athens and Beijing.

Next up for me are the BC Airgun Championships being held near Vancouver on March 4 - 6, 2011.

New personal best in 10M Pistol

I arrived in Toronto late Thursday to some light snow and cold weather. Really cold compared to Vancouver. ;)

Today's weather:
Toronto: -15°C
Vancouver: 7°C

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!
