Clarification of participation rules for Independent Athletes in ISSF competitions

After receiving numerous requests for clarification, ISSF is pleased to issue an update to all federations regarding the eligibility of independent neutral athletes (AIN).

Athletes classified as AIN are entitled to participate in ISSF competitions but, per country of origin, there can only be a maximum of 3 athletes competing for medals and 2 athletes as ranking points only (RPO). 

To avoid any misunderstanding, ISSF wants to clarify that the maximum number of athletes permitted at any competition depends on their country of origin, even if they are AIN athletes.
