Changwon's 2018 World Shooting Championship
Co-chairmen of Organizing Committee
President of Korea Shooting Federation, Hwang Yong-deug
Welcome to ‘the 52nd Changwon World Shooting Championships in 2018’, a global festival.
South Korea already had the experience of hosting this competition in Seoul 40 years ago in 1978. I am very proud of hosting this great competition in Changwon for the second time in South Korea.
Certainly, this event would be the great opportunity to let the world know once again the excellence of South Korea to host and operate the International Shooting Range.
Shooting is one of the comprehensive sports that require a combination of mental composure and concentration, based on the physical strength.
In the light of this, I hope that this event would become an opportunity to expand professional sports into nation-wide everyday sports.
In addition, more than 140 members of ISSF are expected to participate in the Changwon World Shooting Championships.
And it would be natural for me to believe that this would be a celebration of world friendship and harmony and a global village festival to share sympathy, courage, and hope.
As the president of the organizing committee, I promise that we will do our best to demonstrate the status of Korean shooting all over the world.
We would like to ask the citizens of Korea and the world warm support and active participation.
