Teenage shooting sensation Manu Bhaker will be back for the third edition of the Online Shooting Championship that will take place on Saturday.
The 18-year-old had missed the last chapter of the tournament conducted by professional marksman Shimon Sharif after her manual paper target lately started throwing up errors. “The default thread was replaced with a different one and the makeshift plan wasn’t working,” said the 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medalist.
Bhaker’s previous target has now been replaced by SIUS Ascor’s HS10, an electronic target compatible with air guns, which is used at ISSF-supervised competitions.
“Thanks to the efforts of the Olympic Gold Quest programme and the Sports Authority of India, I could get my target delivered home from Faridabad,” said Bhaker, who could be competing in three events in the Tokyo Olympics next year.
