Acapulco not only has the largest over-the-ocean zip line in the world (its's called XTASEA), but now for a fourth time the Mexican beach destination will host the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup Shotgun series this March 17-27. Live streaming during the match is available here: www.issf-sports.org/pages/livestream.ashx.

Earlier this month, Kim Rhode won the action-packed first stage of the ISSF World Cup Series in New Delhi, India—the sixteenth of her career. Now, for the second stage 206 shotgun shooters will compete in Acapulco in this next event of the Olympic cycle.

The categories for men and women include Trap, Double Trap, and Skeetwith award ceremonies at the close of each day to honor the winners. The final ceremony of the ten-day event will be held Sunday, March 26 at 3:15 p.m. (CST). The competitions and award ceremonies will take place at the Acapulco Hunting, Shooting and Fishing Club.

After a highly competitive process, Acapulco was selected as host city for the championship for the fourth time in the last eight years. Acapulco previously hosted the event in 2010, 2013 and 2015. Undoubtedly influencing the choice of the legendary beach destination were its attractions, delicious gastronomy and rich culture.
