Shooting_rulesOctober 27 - New rules designed to make shooting more appealing are being tested at this week's ISSF World Cup Final in Munich.

International Shooting Sport Federation technical delegate Gary Anderson said: "ISSF leaders are confident these changes will make the presentation of the sport more exciting and interesting to spectators and television viewers."

If the tests are successful the new rules could be in place for the London 2012 Olympics.

The decision to change how shooting finals are conducted was made after television productions during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing were analysed by the International Olympic Committee Olympic Broadcast System and ISSF.

The analysis by experts proposed a series of changes that are now being tested during the 2010 World Cup Final.

More than 90 competitors from 30 countries are taking part in the event which concludes tomorrow.
