Factors that influence performance in Olympic air-rifle and small-bore shooting: A systematic review

Spancken, Sina; Steingrebe, Hannah; Stein, Thorsten

Air-rifle and small-bore shooting are fascinating Olympic sports due to their unique performance requirements for accuracy and precision.

The purpose of our study was to systematically research the literature to determine and summarize performance determinants in both air-rifle and small-bore shooting. Since some athletes participate internationally in both disciplines in competition, the disciplines must have some similarity in the performance structure. Therefore, we further investigated whether performance in air-rifle and small-bore shooting can be explained by the same performance determinants.

We systematically searched in four databases using combined keywords relevant to performance in air-rifle and small-bore shooting. The articles included had undergone peer-review and had a) a direct relation to shooting performance, b) an indirect relation by comparing the performance of shooters of different skill levels, and c) a practical relevance (directly controllable through training). After the quality of each article was assessed, the key data were extracted and summarized.

The fourteen articles included achieved an average of 60 ± 14% (range 30–80%) in quality assessment. ... mehr
