Indian shooters have performed exceptionally well at the last 3 Olympics. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore won a silver medal at 2004 Athens Olympics, Abhinav Bindra won an individual gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Vinay Kumar and Gagan Narang won a silver and bronze at the 2012 London Summer Games.
With exactly a year left for the Rio Olympics, a lot of Indian shooters have already occupied the slots.
Apurvi Chandela has already qualified for next year’s Olympic Games after her podium finish at the 2015 Changwon World Cup.
The reigning Commonwealth Games gold medallist impressed yet again as she clinched the silver medal in women’s 10m air rifle event of the ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup Finals that is currently being played in Munich.
The 22-year-old Jaipur girl tallied 206.9 and finished second, just 0.6 behind Ahmadi Elaheh of Iran, who won the gold medal with a tally of 207.5.
