In International terms, the Commonwealth Games is the highest level a shooter can aspire to while representing Wales. Wales is not recognised by the International Olympic Commitee (IOC) or International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) as a country, and to compete in World Cups, European and World Championships, or the Olympic Games, Welsh shooters must become part of the United Kingdom team.
