Ronak Pandit, Oleg Mikhailov and Samaresh Jung will be among the seven coaches travelling with the Indian shooting squad to the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

“Ronak has been training Manu for the past six months, before the New Delhi World Cup, so he is there,” a source in the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) said.

“Logistical hurdles” arising out of the coronavirus situation came in the way of the NRAI plans to rotate all its coaches during the Games.

Mikhailov, appointed in 2017, will be in charge of the rifle team along with Deepali Deshpande and Suma Shirur.

Samaresh Jung and Pandit will be training the pistol contingent comprising Saurabh Chadhary, Manu Bhaker, Abhishek Verma, Yashaswini Singh Deswal and Rahi Sarnobat.
