Shooting: After 2014 World Championships China leads Quotas with 9

64 quotas across the 15 shooting events were up for grabs during the 2014 Shooting World Championships held from September 6th 2014 to September 20th 2014. The top ranked athletes qualified their nations with a maximum of 2 athletes per event. In addition athletes can only qualify one quota for their nations and thus cannot qualify another quota in a different event.

In total 27 nations qualified at least 1 quota with China leading the count with 9. Germany, Italy, Russia and South Korea were tied for second with 5 athlete quotas won. Among the 15 Olympic events three world records were either tied or broken; Jin Jong-oh of South Korea broke the record in men’s 50m pistol, Sergey Kamenskiy of Russia broke the record in men’s 50m rifle prone and Albina Shakirova of Russia tied the skeet world record, but sadly failed to qualify a spot for the Olympics after finishing in fourth in the later rounds.
