    OTTAWA – Paralympians Doug Blessin (Port Coquitlam, BC) and Lyne Tremblay (Magog, QC) are preparing to represent Canada in Shooting Para sport at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, as both were officially named to the Canadian Paralympic Team today by the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) and Shooting Federation of Canada (SFC).   

    Blessin will become a three-time Paralympian in Tokyo, having also competed at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Games. His best result is the sixth-place finish he earned in the SH2 10m air rifle prone in Rio.  

    “I’m looking forward to having another opportunity to get the Canadian flag on the podium after not finishing up to my potential in London and finishing in sixth just outside of the medals in Rio,” said Blessin. “I also look forward to bringing my thanks to the Japanese people. As athletes we have trained so hard for four to five years for a one-hour chance to show the world our best, and I am grateful to still have that opportunity to do that at the Tokyo Games this summer.” 

    Tremblay is also set to make her third Paralympic appearance, but her first in the sport of shooting. She previously competed in Para archery at Beijing 2008 and London 2012.  

    “I would like to first thank the team that has so generously been working with me for the past five years through this enriching adventure to the Tokyo Games,” said Tremblay. “I will wear the colours of my country with pride and honour, and while I will do my best to perform well, what is most important to me is contributing to the next generation and demonstrating that effort and perseverance can take us far.” 

    Blessin and Tremblay will both compete in the SH2 mixed 10m air rifle standing (August 30), 10m air rifle prone (September 1), and 50m rifle prone events (September 4) in Tokyo. It will be the first competition for the pair since October 2019, when they participated in the Sydney World Cup. 

    “It is remarkable to see the commitment and focus demonstrated by these two athletes,” said Gale Stewart, Shooting Para sport head coach. “I have high hopes for them as evidenced from their training.”

    Shooting Para sport has been part of the Paralympic program since 1976, and the Games features men’s, women’s and mixed events from distances of 10m, 25m, and 50m. Athletes compete in either the SH1 class (for athletes with lower limb impairments) or SH2 (for athletes with upper limb impairments which require the use of a shooting stand to support the rifle, potentially in combination with a lower limb impairment). 

    “Congratulations to Doug and Lyne for each being selected to compete at the Paralympic Games for a third time!” said Stephanie Dixon, chef de mission, Tokyo 2020 Canadian Paralympic Team. “Both Lyne and Doug have worked so hard to be able to continue training in challenging circumstances over the past year and a half. I look forward to seeing them make an exciting return to competition in Tokyo. I wish them the best of luck!”

    Unfortunately for the summer of 2021, only the skeet championship will be held from August 18 to 22 in Saskatoon. See the FTC's calendar of events for more details. Due to restrictions still in effect in several provinces, there will be no Canadian championships for pistol, rifle and trap. The safety of our athletes, officials and volunteers once again greatly influenced this decision. However, we encourage all provincial and territorial organizations to hold provincial or territorial competitions and to report the results as part of the Coast to coast Championship. Please read this note from the High Performance Program.

With that in mind, we are always looking for persons to be reflective of these values, including BIPOC, First Nations, those who’ve immigrated to Canada and those who are in our younger demographic.

    The SFC is in need of specific support in the following provinces & territories that have had no representative on the Board of Directors for several years now: Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Yukon and Nunavut.

    Please note that if you are interested in volunteering at the SFC Board level, there will be positions open for election at this year’s meeting.

    TORONTO (April 30, 2021) - On Friday, the Shooting Federation of Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee nominated Team Canada’s sole athlete to compete in shooting at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.


    For the second straight Olympic Games, Calgary’s Lynda Kiejko secured the women’s 10m air pistol quota spot for Team Canada by winning gold at the 2018 Continental American Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico. She followed up by besting the four other potential Canadian athletes at a January 2020 High Performance Team Trials, just four months after giving birth to her third child. She will also compete in the 25m pistol event in Tokyo, having achieved the Minimum Qualification Score needed to enter.


    "Heading into my second Olympic Games fills me with excitement and great honour to represent Canada on the world’s greatest athletic stage," said Kiejko. "Representing Canada at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games was a great learning experience and one which I have used as motivation for the last five years preparing for Tokyo 2020.


    “I am proud to compete in Tokyo, 57 years after my father, the late Bill Hare, competed at the 1964 Olympic Games. There have been many challenges in preparation, and I couldn't be more excited by the potential that we have built as we continue to strive for excellence."


    Kiejko has shown great potential at international events including the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, where she won gold in both the 10m air pistol and 25m pistol. Winning those two gold medals in 2015 qualified her for her first Olympic Games in 2016. Leading up to the 2015 Pan Am Games, Kiejko also placed sixth at the 2015 Changwon World Cup.


    In addition to strong World Cup and Pan Am Games showings, she also won bronze at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in 10m air pistol pairs with her older sister Dorothy Ludwig, a London 2012 Olympian. Kiejko cites sharing the podium with her sister as her greatest memory as an athlete. Both Lynda and Dorothy come from a family of Olympic calibre pistol athletes as their father, Bill Hare, was a three-time Olympian and Commonwealth Games gold medallist in the air pistol discipline.


    Shooting will take place July 24 to August 2 (Day 1 to 10) at the Asaka Shooting Range, a legacy venue of the 1964 Olympic Games. 


    "No matter the challenges that have tried to pull Lynda off track, Lynda has remained incredibly focused on her path to get to Tokyo. Clearly, she has a talent for staying on target!" said Marnie McBean, Team Canada's Tokyo 2020 Chef de Mission. "And to follow her father’s footsteps, 57 years after he competed at Tokyo 1964 is an incredible story.”


    Kiejko will be accompanied at Tokyo 2020 by Rockglen, Saskatchewan’s Lisa Borgerson who has been nominated as the Canadian National Pistol Coach.


    Prior to being named to Team Canada, all nominations are subject to approval by the Canadian Olympic Committee’s Team Selection Committee following its receipt of nominations by all National Sport Organisations.

    Dear members,

    Find attached Sandra Honour, president of the Shooting Federation of Canada's letter to Bill Blair regarding the recent Bill C-21.

    Due to the ongoing pandemic and the limited interprovincial access for athletes, the 2021 National Championships are NOT considered a High Performance trial competition. The decision has been made to, once again, roll over the current High Performance Team into 2022. Full details on the team roll over can be found here.
