Hundreds of sharpshooters from around the world will converge later this month on Fort Benning for the 2010 World Cup USA shooting tournament.
Hosted by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit in conjunction with USA Shooting, this event -- the third of four World Cups being held this year -- is conducted by the International Shooting Sport Federation. It will be held May 22-31.
More than 400 of the world's top-level shooters from 49 countries have committed to the event so far.
Shooters competing in two Olympic shooting disciplines -- rifle and pistol -- will be competing for medals and world records. This is also the same range where 2012 Olympic quota slots will be earned next year, according to an AMU release.
Never miss a local story.
Opening ceremonies for the World Cup will be held at the National Infantry Museum.
