The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) has announced a 32-member core group of shooters to train for the Tokyo Olympics.
The 15 shooters who won the Olympic quota have been clubbed with two additional shooters in each of the events. There are also two rapid-fire shooters selected for training even though India has not won an Olympic quota in the event as yet. There is still scope of getting the Olympic quota in rapid-fire pistol through the world rank.
Only Anjum Moudgil and Manu Bhaker figure in two events each, as both are top class in an event apart from the one in which they have won the Olympic quota. Only Apurvi Chandela and Mairaj Ahmad Khan have stayed on course after competing in the Rio Olympics, to first win the Olympic quota for Tokyo and then stay in the race.
