Shooting Australia has gone to market to appoint an official apparel supplier, including a licensed merchandise range, for National teams, Pathway Teams, Events Officials and Events staff.
Shooting Australia has issued an Expression of Interest and intends to make an appointment before Christmas.
Shooting Australia General Manager Commercial and Marketing, Sarah Brady, said Australia is regarded as one of the best Shooting nations in the world.
“This is a great opportunity for an apparel company to partner with one of Australia’s premier international Olympic sports,” said Ms Brady.
“Shooting is Australia’s seventh most successful Olympic sports and has produced several gold medallists in recent times including Michael Diamond, Russell Mark, Suzy Balogh and, most recently, Catherine Skinner at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games,” said Ms Brady.
“Australian athletes have excelled at Paralympic Games, and Australia is the most successful nation in Shooting at the Commonwealth Games.
“We have also produced a number of World Champions. In 2019, Olympians James Willett and Laetisha Scanlan won the World Trap Mixed Pairs title, with team-mates Tom Grice and Penny Smith claiming the bronze medal,” added Ms Brady.
“These teams will be forces to be reckon with at the Tokyo Olympic Games next year.”
Australian teams regularly travel overseas, in normal times, to contest World Cup and other major international championship across mainland Europe, Gulf nations, Asia plus North and South America.
Australia will also host the 2024 Junior World Championships for Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun disciplines at the Sydney International Shooting Centre (SISC) at Cecil Park.
