Beijing Olympic Venues & Stadiums: Beijing Shooting Range Hall
Beijing Shooting Range Hall 北京射击馆
As you approach the venue this incredibly long building seems to go on and on forever into the distance by necessity of the sport. The entrance to this 5,000 capacity arena looks a little like the shape of a clamp or giant tongs, while the end of the building is filled with steel supports in the shape of stretched bows ready to launch their deadly arrows.
A glass atrium dissects the three storey building to allow natural light to enter the hall and to save energy costs. The 10-meter, 25-meter, and 50-meter range shooting events of the 2008 Olympic Games and the shooting event of the Paralympic Games will be held here.
Visitors to the Beijing Shooting Range Hall may enjoy combining a visit to the Beijing Shooting Range Hall with a side trip to the very nearby mountains of western Beijing.
