India’s last hope in shooting
Former Navy man Sanjeev Rajput, now into his third Olympics, young Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar, who is on his Olympic debut, will look to bring cheers to the Indian shooting contingent in Tokyo, when they compete in the men’s 50m Rifle 3 positions qualification round, at the Asaka Shooting range on Monday, the 10th concluding day of the shooting competitions.
Rajput Tomar are ranked sixth second in the world in this most gruelling shooting event on schedule.
Both Indians will have to fight hard for a top-eight spot, given the presence of the likes of defending Olympic champion Sergey Kamenskiy of Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) world No. 1 Istvan Peni of Hungary in the 48-strong field, among other heavyweight 3P exponents.
The Indian shooters have had a dismal outing in Tokyo, with only Saurabh Chaudhary making it to the finals of the 10m air pistol event but finishing seventh. All the other shooters in pistol, rifle shotgun shooting have dished out sub-par performances.
