Belarus earns three 2024 Paris Games berths in shooting

Aliaksandra Piatrova has qualified for the 2024 Olympics winning bronze at the 2024 European Shooting Championship in Osijek, Croatia.

Aliaksandra Piatrova scored 583 points in the Women’s 25m Pistol in the qualification to reach the final in the seventh position. In the final the Belarusian secured bronze. 

The European champion title was secured by Camille Jedrzejewski from France. Germany's Doreen Wennekamp placed second. The bronze medal became the first one for Belarus at the tournament.


The 25m pistol is an Olympic discipline. According to the regulations, the 2024 Games licenses are awarded to the two best athletes in the discipline, who have not yet won them at the previous competitions. Since the silver medalist from Germany had already won the Olympic license before, and France as the host country reserves a quota in this event, one of the licenses was awarded to Aliaksandra Piatrova. Daria Chupris of Belarus also qualified for the 2024 Paris Games, placing sixth in the women’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions.
