Tevarit Majchacheep

Tevarit Majchacheep (Thai: เทวฤทธิ์ มัจฉาชีพ; rtgsThewarit Matchachip) (born February 22, 1975) in Thailand, was the first 10 m Air Rifle shooter to raise a world record to the maximum level, hitting the 0.5-millimeter dot with 60 consecutive shots. He was fairly unknown to the shooting community (although he had finished fifth at an ISSF World Cup) when he accomplished this at the 2000 Asian Championships in Langkawi. Since then, he has been a regular finalist at world-level competitions, but has so far failed to win any of the large championships.

Since Tevarit's 600, several women have reached the maximum 400 points of their shorter Air Rifle match, but he remained the sole holder of the men's world record until 2008.
