The current situation, where shooters around the world yearn for some completion, inspired him to hold an online meeting.

Due to the blockage, the shooters are only training at their respective locations, but they need skills to verify where they are. Since all international competitions have been phased out this year, I thought online meetings will be an ideal solution to the situation. he said.

Although the competition will be held according to international rules, Sharif said there will be no disqualifications if there is any technical problem on the part of the shooters.

"Even if a shooter gets disconnected or has some glitch with the streaming and the jury can’t see them, they will be asked to continue Shooting and finish their match. The jury can see their final score at the end of the match. Since this meet doesn’t have anything at stake, and personal assessment is the only motive here, we expect everybody to play fair. We have invited only the elite shooters for this meet, we can expect the fairness from them," he said.

The International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) can take a note or two.
