Shooting News: Shooter Saurabh Chaudhary gears up for shooting World Cup 2019

Shooting World Cup, which will start from February 20 will offer a maximum of 16 quota places for the Tokyo Olympics. After some good individual performances domestically, the shooters will be aiming to get maximum quotas from the event to be held at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range. India have already bagged their maximum share of two country quotas in the women’s 10m air rifle competition through Anjum Moudgil and Apurvi Chandela in the ISSF World Championship in Changwon last year and will compete for the rest of the 14 places. As such, these athletes will not be eligible for quotas, however that does not stop them from winning a medal. A total of 495 shooters will be competeting in New Delhi with the first medal event beginning February 23. A lot of hopes will be on Saurabh Chaudhary who will represent India in the men’s 10 metre air pistol event. The teenager said that he is all set for his first senior World Cup event. Power Sportz Correspondent caught up with him in an exclusive chat.
