Olympic Games Gender Equality
The International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Agenda 2020 called for 50% female participation by the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. In November 2016 the ISSF published it’s ad-hoc committee’s recommendations which include:
- Each shooting category (Shotgun, Rifle and Pistol) currently has five events in the Olympic Games
- Each category to replace one event with a mixed gender event
- Olympic Double-Trap, due to it being the lowest participation Shotgun event, to be replaced with a Trap mixed team (1 female, 1 male)
The final decision and recommendations will be sent to the IOC by 28th February 2017, which is the deadline set by the IOC. The IOC will then decide the 2020 Olympic shooting events program later this year. The ISSF makes it very clear that the directive for these changes has been brought about by the IOC and not by the ISSF.
