The weather and smallbore rifle shooting
The weather is an important influence on the sport of smallbore rifle shooting. Several meteorological elements play their part in determining the shooter's performance and hence his final score. The United States Weather Service considers that the weather plays such an important part in the performance of athletes that for the recent Olympic Games forecasts were provided to several competition venues, including the shooting complex at Prado. The weather and climate of an area are also important factors to be taken into consideration in the design and location of a shooting complex.
