Disabled Athletes

Shooting is a sport in which athletes with a disability often participate alongside their able bodied counterparts. The Melbourne International Shooting Club has facilities which cater for athletes with a disability. Wheelchair access is available to the club room and to all shooting ranges.

Honour Board

The club has a proud history of representation at national and international level. Several of our members have enjoyed success at both Olympic and Commonwealth Games. Our honour board showcases both the sporting achievements of our members and their contributions to the development of the club.

The club has had several members achieve selection to compete at the Olympic Games. In 1956, just after the club was formed, Rod Johnson & Neville Sayers were the club’s first representatives to be selected competing in our home town games in Melbourne. Since then we have had representatives at several Olympic Games, and in 2004 we had our strongest representation ever with 6 club members achieving selection for the Olympic Games.

Special mention should be made of Alex Parygin who was the Olympic champion whilst competing for Khazakstan in Modern Pentathlon at the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996.
