Countries throughout the Commonwealth quickly followed suit. In Australia, the States formed individual Rifle Associations to host the competition. International competition flourished, and in fact, the first national Australian sporting team ever to tour overseas was a rifle team in 1876. If you wish to observe a Queen's Prize Shoot, visit the Victorian Rifle Association website for details. A quaint historic practice is the winner being carried to the presentation ceremony high in a chair supported by his/her peers while carrying the rifle shot in the competition, and sometimes to the strain of the pipes.
