The "World Cup" Competition:  The World Cup is a competition for smallbore rifle shooters and was introduced to the LSSA's competition programme in 1990.  It was originally patterned on the then current football World Cup competition and it basically still does although FIFA has tweaked the format of their Finals since then and has made it difficult if not impossible to transfer to this environment. Here's a picture of the awards on offer.
