Longley (Waterdown, Ont.), will compete in the women’s trap shooting event while Robinson (Calgary, Alta.) will take part in men’s 10-metre air rifle.
The duo will be accompanied by Team Leader Lisa Borgerson, who served as head coach at the 2015 Summer Universiade – her third consecutive FISU Games as a member of the Canadian staff.
“I feel privileged to be able to introduce this calibre of competition to our shooters and provide a positive environment that will allow our athletes to focus their attention on performing their best,” said Borgerson. “An event of this magnitude has many obstacles and challenges. It is as much about preparing athletes for future success as it is about achieving those successes.”
