The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) has slightly altered the dates of the 2021 World Cup in New Delhi – an event due to be a key part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification process.
Competition was scheduled to take place next year in the Indian capital, between March 19 and 28.
It has now been decided to extend the time-frame by two days, with new dates of March 18 to 29 confirmed.
The decision means the World Cup will be further spread out amid the coronavirus pandemic.
It was confirmed by the ISSF last month that the New Delhi competition would be "decisive" for Tokyo 2020 qualification through the world ranking process.
The governing body were forced to postpone this year's World Cup event in the city due to the spread of COVID-19.
Initially scheduled for March 15 to 26, the pandemic also forced the cancellation of efforts to stage the World Cup as two separate competitions in May.
It was due to be included as part of shooting's qualification period for Tokyo 2020, with athletes able to secure world ranking points towards earning a spot at the Games.
Next year's event is now set to still be included as part of the qualification process after the Olympics were moved back a year to 2021.
The ISSF said it hopes to maintain as much of the original qualification system as possible.
Rifle, pistol and shotgun are all on the itinerary for New Delhi in 2021.
