Petra Zublasing, from Italy, women's World Champion and women´s shooter of the year, will be the main presenter in shooting at the Games.
Icelandic shooters, many of whom participated in previous GSSE, have done well and come home with a prize. It will be interesting to see how they perform the next few days. These include Jón Þór Sigurðsson, who broke an Icelandic record at the last Icelandic Championships in 60 clips lying rifle.
