World Shooting Para Sport have revealed that the Slovenian town of Laško will host the 2020 European 10 metre Championships.
The competition will take place from June 11 to 19, serving as a Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games warm-up event for many of the athletes.
"The desire for organising a shooting para sport competition in Slovenia has been growing for many years now," said Damijan Lazar, President of the National Paralympic Committee of Slovenia.
"And now we've got the opportunity to not only host an international event, but even the European Championships.
"We want to add a new sport to the successful organisations of Para table tennis competitions.
"There is no doubt that these major sporting events have positive effects on the recognition of para sports in Slovenia.”
Competitors from more than 25 countries around Europe are expected to register.
Francek Gorazd Tirsek will be Slovenia's top medal contender, with the Rio 2016 and London 2012 Paralympic silver medallist expected to star in the mixed 10m air rifle standing SH2.
The most recent edition of the 10m European Championships took place last December in the Serbian capital of Belgrade.
In total, 122 athletes from 27 countries competed over 16 medal events,
Records had been reset at the competition, with each gold medallist establishing a new mark for future athletes to aim for.
