The five-day competition, offering 16 Olympic quota places for the Tokyo 2020 Games in rifle and pistol, will feature 495 shooters in all from 58 countries.

The value of winning the Olympic quota places in shooting can be gleaned from the fact that there are only 360 spots for the sport in the Tokyo Olympics. There will be 45 medals in shooting in 15 events, which mathematically works to an interesting average of one medal for every eight shooters.

Only the individual events in air pistol, air rifle, rapid fire pistol, sports pistol, rifle 3-position for men and women will have two Olympic quota places each.
