Air Rifle Women, Air Pistol Men, to launch India’s Shooting challenge at Tokyo 2020


NRAI,NEW DELHI 23 Jul 2021 , ApurviChandela and ElavenilValarivan go first in Women’s 10M Air Rifle

SaurabhChaudhary and AbhishekVerma follow in Men’s 10M Air Pistol

New Delhi, Friday, July 23, 2021:The stage is set for Tokyo 2020, the XXXII Olympiad, and the 15-member Indian Shooting contingent is ‘raring to go’ as per official communication with the squad in at the Games Village. Come Saturday, July 24, 2021, the Shooting competitions of the Tokyo Games get underway with two of the 15 finals lined up and four Indian shooters on show.

It begins early morning (5.00 AM IST) with the 10M Air Rifle Women’s qualification round, where India’s ApurviChandela and world number one ElavenilValarivan are in contention. They will be looking to make it to the top eight finals field from among 49-shooters in the qualification fray. The finals are scheduled for 7.15am IST.

SaurabhChaudhary and AbhishekVerma then take the field with the same intention in the Men’s 10M Air Pistol with qualifications beginning at 9.30am IST for the 36-man field. The finals then follow from 12 noon.

Coaches of both the Rifle and Pistol camps were upbeat after completion of pre-event training, a day before the competitions at the Asaka Shooting Range on Friday.

National Rifle coach DeepaliDeshpande said, ““the girls are all raring to go and training today has been as planned. We are confident of a good showing tomorrow.”

Also sharing his thoughts from Tokyo was Pistol coach RonakPandit saying, “Yes the boys trained for an hour today as did other members of the squad and they are all shaping up well. We are all looking forward to the start of competitions and are focused on the job ahead.”

Women’s 10M Air Rifle

A total of 60-shots are fired in the qualification round in an allotted time of 75minutes from a 0.177 inches caliber Air Rifle, and scoring is in decimals of 10 with a 10.9 being the perfect shot.

ROC athlete YuliaKarimova, the reigning world champion in the 50M Rifle 3 Positions Olympic event and Chinese Taipei’s world number four Lin Ying-Shin will pose the most formidable threats in the field.

In form shooters like Carolyne Mary Tucker of the US, ZivaDvorsak of Slovenia, Sofia Ceccarilo of Italy, and EszterMezaros of Hungary will also pose a strong challenge along with the Chinese duo of Wang Luyao and Yang Qian and strong Korean shooter Eunji Kwon.

Generally a score of 630 out of a maximum possible 654 ensures qualification into the finals at this level. The Indian duo has recorded world competition bests of 633 (Apurvi) and 632.7 (Elavenil) respectively.

Apurvi also holds the finals world record in the event with a score of 252.9 to her name.

The finals are a 24-shot affair with eighth place being decided after 12-shots and one shooter being eliminated after every two shots thereafter, till the winner is decided after the 23rd and 24th single shots.

The field is without the Rio Olympics medallists and therefore will have a new Olympic Champion.

Men’s 10M Air Pistol

Saurabh and Abhishek have been by far, the two best Air Pistol shooters in the world over the past three years, but the much narrower 36-man field here is fraught with danger, simply because of the presence of some legends of Pistol shooting, led by the biggest of them all, the inimitable Korean Jongoh Jin.

The four-time Olympic Champion (including once in this event), is also the reigning world champion and will have for company, Beijing Olympic Champion Pang Wei of China, the Rio Rapid Fire Pistol Champion Christian Reitz of Germany and the Rio defending champion Hoang XuanVinh of Vietnam.

The Indian duo will also have to contend with the challenges of ROC athlete ArtemChernousov (world number three), in-form Iranian JavadForoughi (world number four and winner of the last two world cups before the Olympics), seasoned Serbian DamirMikec, recently crowned European Champion JurajTuzinsky of Slovakia and top-class Ukranian shooters OlehOmelchuk and PavloKorostylov among others.

The qualification round here is scored in full rings as opposed to decimals in the Air Rifle competition, and a score of 580 is considered bare minimum to reach the finals of World class competitions.

The finals revert to decimal scoring and follow the exact same format as the Air Rifle competition, explained earlier.

Final ISSF World Cup stage set to get underway in Osijek, Croatia


NRAI,NEW DELHI 24 Jun 2021 , Four finals lined up on competition day one

New Delhi, Wednesday, June 23, 2021:A 13-member Tokyo 2020 Olympics bound Indian Rifle and Pistol shooting squad, is all set to begin their engagements at the year’s final International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Rifle/Pistol/Shotgun stage, in the quaint Croatian town of Osijek from Thursday, June 24, 2021.

The first day of competitions have four finals, basically all the individual 10M Air events in Rifle and Pistol, lined up and will see as many as 11-Indians vying for the coveted ISSF World Cup medal.

This will be their final international assignment before the quadrennial showpiece in the Japanese capital, whose opening ceremony is scheduled exactly a month from today.

India have fielded three shooters in each of the four medal events on Thursday, barring the Men’s 10M Air Pistol, where they have two shooters in world numbers one and two, Abhishek Verma and Saurabh Chaudhary.

The day begins however with the 10M Air Rifle Men’ competition where India’s Deepak Kumar and world number twoDivyansh Singh Panwar will attempt to qualify for the eight-man final. They will also be joined by Three Positions (3P) exponent Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar, thereby enabling them to also compete for the Men’s Team event.

That will be followed by the Women’s 10M Air Rifle qualifiers where ElavenilValarivan, also currently world number one, will start alongside teammatesApurviChandela and Anjum Moudgil.

RahiSarnobat, Manu Bhaker and YashaswiniDeswalwill then feature in the Women’s 10M Air Pistol qualifiers, sandwiched between the two Air Rifle finals.

Finally, Abhishek and Saurabh compete in the Men’s 10M Air Pistol qualifiers, scheduled inbetween the Women’s Rifle and Pistol finals.

A total of 520 shooting athletes from 47 countries have assembled in Osijek. They would be taking a total of 1134 starts.

The ISSF World Cup bandwagon set rolling in Cairo, Egypt, in February this year, with a Shotgun-only world cup, and the first combined world cup was then held in New Delhi, India, in March.

Since then, there has been another Shotgun World Cup in Lonato, Italy, which makes the Osijek competition the fourth Shotgun and the second Rifle and Pistol World Cup for the year.

The world’s top shooters including strong contingents from Shooting heavyweights like Russia, Germany, France, Italy, besides hosts Croatia, will be looking to fine-tune their skills before heading for the Tokyo Games next month.

Some top names to watch out for besides the Indian stars would be the likes of Olympic and World Champion Anna Korakakki of Greece, reigning Olympic Champion Christian Reitz of Germany, world number one in Rifle Istvan Peni of Hungary, as well as such Shooting legends as RajmondDebevec of Slovenia.

Indiawill send 15-shooters to the Summer Olympic Games this time around and the 13 at Osijek have been training in Croatia for close to two months now. The two Skeet shooters for Tokyo, Mairaj Khan and Angad Bajwa, are training in Italy and have opted out of the World Cup basis advice from their coaches. That leaves India without an entry in the Shotgun category.

India have off-late dominated the ISSF World Cups, particularly in Rifle and Pistol events and have finished on top of the medals tally in the previous New Delhi combined world cup as well.

More medals are naturally expected therefore over the next nine days of competition. There are a total of 30 finals lined up in that period.
