The 2016 flagbearer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, has participated in an international Para-shooting competition in Italy.

The competition was one of the series of pre-qualification events for the world championship in Sydney, Australia, later this year.

Mr. Greenstreet, on his official Facebook Timeline  said, he intends to collaborate with international connections to encourage shooting sports in general and Para-shooting sports in Ghana, especially among the youth.

Mr. Greenstreet is the first African to compete in Para shooting sports at international events.

Shooting is a precision sport, in which athletes use focus and controlled breathing to reduce their heart rates and improve stability and high performance.

The ability to control hand and mind to deliver a sequence of shots requires well-developed powers of concentration and emotional control.

Athletes compete in events from distances of 10m, 25m and 50m in men’s, women’s and mixed competition events.
