Shooting benefits from AIS cash grant

Paralympics shooting has been included in a $1.5m grants program intended to boost Australia’s medal tally at the Tokyo Paralympic Games next year. The Australian Institute of Sport grant will benefit seven sports including shooting, wheelchair rugby, archery, men’s wheelchair basketball, triathlon, boccia and canoeing.

The grants were allocated to high performance Para programs which all have strong hopes of enhancing Australia’s proud Paralympic record in Tokyo. “In this increasingly uncertain economic climate, PA is grateful for the critical support Paralympic Programs receive from the Federal Government, Sport Australia and the AIS which is enabling Paralympic athletes to keep pursuing their dreams of making Australia proud when they get their long-awaited chance again,” Paralympics Australia President Jock O’Callaghan said.

Shooting Australia’s Para program will receive $160,000 from the funding to ensure the best chance of medal success.
