Competitors in three-position air rifle events fire in three different shooting positions, prone, standing and kneeling. In the prone position, the left elbow must be behind the rear edge of the firing line. In the standing and kneeling positions, the entire left foot must be behind the firing line. The rifle and other parts of the body may extend beyond the firing line as long as no part of the body is contacting the floor or is in front of the firing line.
Physical Disabilities, Substituting Positions
Every effort will be made to encourage and facilitate participation by physically disabled persons, whether the disability is temporary or permanent, as long as the disabled person is not given an unfair advantage over other competitors.
