HOST Trinidad and Tobago surged to the West Indies Fullbore Shooting Council Short Range and, in the process, dethroned Barbados who had won on home soil in 2018.

All the action unfolded at the Tucker Valley Range, Chaguaramas and was hosted by the Northern Rifle Association of Trinidad and Tobago (NRATT) under the auspices of the West Indies Full Bore Shooting Council (WIFBSC).

Former WIFBSC Individual Champion, Lennox Braithwaite, shot the highest score of any team on Saturday last (148.14) but his effort could not land Guyana the Short Range title as the host team, led by 2019 Individual champion, Varma Rambarran, who shot a total of 147.18, led T&T to 1130.80 points just two more than the Guyanese (1128.65) to win the most coveted team trophy amongst the Caribbean marksmen and women.

While not winning the title, Captain Mahendar Persaud, in an invited comment, said that his charges still made themselves and country proud given some challenging circumstances.

 He noted that all the shooters did their best and summed up that the Trinidad and Tobago side capitalised on their home advantage to the fullest.

Former champions Barbados ended third with a total score of 1075.60 with Antigua and Barbuda fourth with 1063.58. Team Canada won the match with a score of 1142.71 while Team England was fourth with 1115.74.

The Guyanese remain the kings of the Long-Range Team Title and will hold on to the Milex/Crown Mining trophy until next year.
