National team dry-firing

Not sure really what to label this thread. Wasn't there some national pistol team from Rhodesia or South Africa or somewhere in the 70's or 80's that ended up either winning or placing very well in the world championships one year, after doing pretty much nothing but dry-fire practice? I (obviously) don't recall details, but I thought it was in the late 70's.

I was talking with someone about the benefits of dry-fire practice and thought of this story but couldn't remember who & when it was. Anyone remember something like that?

Just maybe, they would not let Melvin around live ammo!

Wish I could remember the specifics - for some reason I'm thinking Rhodesia, but South Africa probably makes more sense due to their internal gun laws and/or international sanctions at the time.

IIRC Japanese sportsmen use airsoft predominately, and they tend to place well in real life sports.

Harsh self-criticism and an object/outcome-oriented focus coupled with a great attitude go a long way in learning and accomplishing pretty much anything manipulation related.
