Shooting News: Shooter Apurvi Chandela exclusive on PS

The qualification race for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics has begun for the Indian shooters. With 16 quota places on offer at the ISSF World Cup to be held at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range from February 20-28, as many as eight first-timers are among the total 23 Indian shooters eyeing these quotas in the 10 scheduled medal events. Out of the 16 quotas, India have a chance to extract a maximum of 14 considering that Anjum Moudgil and Apurvi Chandela have already booked their places in the women’s 10m Air Rifle. Amongst the young guns, a lot of focus will be on 16-year-old Saurabh Chaudhary, who has been hogging the limelight in recent times, in the 10m Air Pistol. The Meerut-based shooter, who won the Youth Olympics gold as well in October last year, said that he is ready to compete with the best in his first senior World Cup outing. (Wait) Indian shooters will enjoy the home advantage and will play in front of packed Indian supporters cheering up for them. India's 10 metre Rifle shooter Apurvi Chandela might have booked the Olympic quota but she is still hungry to win gold medal to stay in good form before the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Power sportz caught with Apurvi in an exclusive chat. Listen in.
