 Looks like this is becoming a feature of every SAARA open, the U 12 prone record was broken again at the 2021 NW Open. Congratulations to Migael Moulder for setting a new SAARA National record in the Under 12 Prone discipline in Klerksdorp on 27 February 2021. SAARA introduced this new discipline to develop the sport to encourage younger athletes to take up the shooting sport. The match is conducted as a 40 shot match in the prone position using a sporter rifle.

Migael shot a score of 380 / 400, improving on the previous record set in January 2021. Keep up the good work Migael, you are making us proud.
