Shooting News: National Rifle Association Of India Hopes To Resume Camp In Mid-August, To Review Situation On July 15

The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) office-bearers, hoping for a mid-August resumption of camps for its Olympics core group, will meet on July 15 to review the situation and explore the limited options left with them amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The NRAI has recently released a list of 34 shooters who will be training separately for the quadrennial sporting extravaganza, scheduled to be held next summer after the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the Games back by a year. These shooters form the core group for the Olympics. And even as the administrators get busy thrashing out resumption plans, India's sportspersons want them to tread with caution, with the pandemic showing no signs of slowing down. Double World Cup gold medallist Abhishek Verma, who is part of the core group, had said that there is no way camps can be organised at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range in the national capital, where the number of cases has grown exponentially in recent weeks.
