MANILA - Members of the Philippine Practical Shooters Association (PPSA) that won the 2013 Austra-Asia shooting championship held from February 26 to March 2, 2013 in Roturua, New Zealand returned home Monday.

The team collected a total of 62 medals - 30 golds, 22 silvers, and 10 bronzes, and won the over-all championship.

The 52-member contingent, headed by PPSA Secretary General Rosendo Castro Jr., arrived at the NAIA terminal 1 on board China Airlines via Taipei flight CI 701. Only two women are members of the team.

Practical shooting is the fastest growing shooting sport in the world. Combining the elements of speed, power, and accuracy, it is a venue that seeks to develop and test an individual's shooting skills in a controlled sporting environment, PPSA secretary general Bodgie Castro told newsmen in an interview at the terminal’s VIP room.
