Summary

FRONT SIGHT

by Marco Masetti

Synopsis



FRONT SIGHT is a collection of my notes as a high level Target Shooting Coach, who managed to achieve training an Athlete who won a Silver medal at the London Olympics.

Mainly I speak of the training methodology in the field of Olympic target shooting, explaining in detail a method that was innovative in the period 2009-2012.

More generally I speak of technical things, however, interspersed with actual episodes that occurred during competitions and training sessions.

I recount what were the guidelines for me as an International Coach, my beliefs, my points of view and also my personal sports education.

I believe it is a useful guide for the entire Shooting world seeing as I write specifically not only about what was carried out during the National Training Camps, but also about the work carried out during individual training sessions.

I illustrate a training period of 21 weeks with a high-level athlete (but I do not publish all the 21 weekly work plans) and also a work plan developed for a club coach who had contacted me because he needed to train one of his athletes.

These two chapters can undoubtedly set a good example for those learning to design work plans for themselves or for their Athletes.

I provide insights into two scientific studies (with experiments) aimed at obtaining a better and improved level of performance, and also a series of "Shooting Games" to make training more interesting.

At the end, I produce an extensive bibliography of the material cited in this book, but which was also useful for me throughout my sports education.

    Lis Hartel became paralyzed after contracting polio in 1944. Her dreams of riding horses and competing in the sport of dressage were shattered. After months in the hospital, doctors told her she'd never ride again. Lis tried anyway. But how do you stay on a horse without using your legs? How do you give the subtle cues needed in dressage with limited mobility? With hard work—and an unlikely horse named Jubilee! After years of training together and creating a new way of communicating, Lis and Jubilee danced into the competition ring—and eventually all the way to the Olympics. Lis Hartel was the first woman with a disability ever to win an Olympic medal and the first woman to stand equally beside men on the Olympic winners' podium in any sport.
