The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) has confirmed the hosts of five World Championships over a four-year period, with a separate continent set to stage each, including Russia for one of its flagship events, despite the threat that it may need to be moved. 

Russia was chosen by the ISSF Executive Committee to host the 2022 World Championships, the ISSF's flagship event, at Fox Lodge Lisya Nora, a shooting range in Ignatovo in Dmitrovsky District, about 38 kilometres outside Moscow.

The Championships, however, could still have to be moved if Russia loses its appeal against a decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to declare them non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code for four-years. 

As well as banning Russia from competing under their own flag at the Olympic Games at Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, another key recommendation is that the country is not allowed to host major events like World Championships.

The Court of Arbitration of Sport is due to hear the appeal in Lausanne between November 2 and 5. 

Any decision that would force world governing bodies to move the Championships would be resisted by the ISSF.

Its President is Vladimir Lisin, Russia's richest man, and who has close ties to Vladimir Putin.

Las Palmas in Peru is scheduled to host the 2021 World Junior Championships, with Changwon in South Korea given the honour for 2022.
