Shooting is one of the traditional advantages of Chinese sports, but the popularity of shooting is difficult to compare with table tennis, basketball and other sports. The shooting events of the Second Youth League include 48 teams from various provinces, municipalities, autonomous regions and Macao Special Administrative Region, in which more than 400 athletes compete together. Xu Haifeng sighed at the scene, from the number of athletes registered for the competition, the popularity of shooting events in China is not bad.

The first result of mens 10m air rifle individual (qualification) in group A of physical education school is 631, which can reach the top 8 in international competition. In addition, the final of mens 10m air rifle in group A of sports schools was won by a 15-year-old young general, and the performance was better.

In this regard, Xu Haifeng said that the athletes are still young, young athletes on the field of some problems are normal, there are many opportunities in the future. In addition, Xu Haifeng sent a message to teenagers on the spot: The problems on the field need to be carefully summarized and focused on solving, so as to form a virtuous circle, the results will be better and better.
