The Longines Prize for Precision awards the most precise male and female athlete throughout the World Cup season. Athletes that shoot the most 10s during their individual qualifications and matches as of the 1/16 elimination round win the trophy, a Longines watch and a cheque of 5,000 Swiss Francs. This year, the Longines Prize will be awarded during the Final in Paris (FRA), scheduled for 21-22 September.
