Organisers of the IPC Shooting World Championships are calling on bilingual people to get in touch ©Bongarts/Getty ImagesVolunteers who can speak other languages are being called on to lend their time at this summer's International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Shooting World Championships in Germany.

The city of Suhl is due to host the biggest Para-shooting competition of the year from July 18 to 26, and organisers have launched a search for bilingual people.

They want English speakers, as well as people who can speak other languages, to help communicate with athletes and teams from around the world at the event.

"The support of volunteers is always essential for transforming a good competition into a great one," said IPC Shooting sport manager Sarah Bond.

"We would be delighted to welcome volunteers who can speak English and any other languages to support this great event which will feature around 300 shooters from over 50 countries.

"Suhl 2014 is the first major stop for athletes on their road to Rio 2016 so we expect some amazing performances and for the world's best to be out in force."

Organisers are also looking for volunteers to help with accreditation, support services for guests and VIPs, welcoming teams at Frankfurt airport and assisting in the organising office.

The last World Championships, in 2010, were held in the Croatian capital Zagreb.
