Hamar in Norway has been awarded the 2022 European 10-metre Championships, the first edition of the event to be jointly organised by World Shooting Para Sport and the European Shooting Confederation (ESC).
World Shooting Para Sport claims the event, scheduled to run from March 13 to 17, will be the biggest international shooting Para sport competition ever staged in the Scandinavian country.
It is also set to be the first major international Championships in the sport to be held after the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, postponed to this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"Hamar 2022 represents a historic moment for our sport and a great cooperation with able-bodied shooting," said World Shooting Para Sport senior manager Tyler Anderson.
"The European 10m Championships will be a great start to our new Paralympic cycle and World Shooting Para Sport looks forward to it.
"I would like to thank the ESC and the Local Organising Committee for their invaluable support."
Hamar is due to become only the second host of the Championships after the 2020 event in Laško in Slovenia was cancelled as a result of the global health crisis.
The Championships were last staged in Belgrade in 2018.
"It is an honour and a privilege to welcome shooters from all over Europe to Norway for Hamar 2022," Organising Committee chairman Bjorn Harald Vik said.
"The motto for the Championships is integration, environmentally friendly, athlete in focus and optimal competition conditions.
"We look forward to meeting all in Hamar to exciting competition days."
