T&T shooters look to upset Jamaica

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

KINGSTON—Intense rivalry between defending champions Jamaica and strong contenders Guyana was expected to feature as the 2014 edition of the West Indies Target Rifle Championships blast off here yesterday. The Guyanese are on the hunt for revenge after being dethroned by Jamaica at last year’s competition, while the Jamaicans will attempt to make it two in a row to ensure top honours on home soil.


Six teams from across the region and a special guest squad from Canada are contesting the five-day tournament at the JDF Range at Twickenham Park, St Catherine. Shooters from Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua, Bermuda and Barbados are looking to make their mark at the prestigious championships.


The Trinidadian marksmen are ranked as having the best chance of upsetting the dual dominance of Jamaica and Guyana who have alternated as winners in recent years. Organisers say an exciting element this year is the inclusion of a goodwill rifle team from the Canadian Rifle Association. (CMC)
