0 0

Two female shooters have the best chance of earning qualifying points for the 2024 Paris Olympics as they compete in the ongoing Asian Games in Guangzhou.

This is what’s in store for Amparo “Ampao” Acuna and Franchette Quiroz, who left on Friday for China, as part of the nine-member national shooting delegation.

So far, Acuna is now no. 153 in the Olympic qualification rankings of the 50-meter rifle, 3-prone position, and no. 175 in the 10-meter rifle event.

“I have been focusing on my technique and physical conditioning lang as preparation,” said Acuna.

Quiroz is climbing up in the women’s 10-meter air pistol rankings and has reached no. 151.

So far, Host nation France is guaranteed twelve quota places with one in each of the individual events.

According to the qualification rules for shooting, the highest-ranked shooter who has not qualified yet or whose National Olympic Committee does not have a berth in any of the twelve individual events will obtain a direct Olympic quota place through the World Rankings.

The remaining sixteen quota places are available to the eligible NOCs under the Tripartite Commission Invitation to attain a maximum number of 340.

Last June, Acuna set another Philippine record when she surpassed the qualifying standard for the Hangzhou Asian Games, by breaking the Philippine mark that she set last April at 583 points in the 50-meter rifle 3-position event.

Officials of the Philippine National Shooting Association said Acuna’s feat was a point ahead of the previous mark she made at 582 during the tryouts for the national team.
