So the ISSF has binned 50m pistol and 50m prone rifle for the 2020 Olympics: http://www.issf-sports.org/news.ashx?newsid=2731

This has been done supposedly to allow mixed gender events but note that both of the replacement events are at 10m with airguns.

So the only 50m sport remaining will be three-position rifle - let's see how long that lasts given that three-position with centrefire rifles at 300m was binned back in the 60s.

I suppose we should be thankful they've forced the Japanese to build a proper 50m range at least.
