Apurvi and Anjum aim to bag medals in 10m Air Rifle At Tokyo 2020

There is only less than a year for the 2020 Olympics, and as far as India is considered, the only potential place where it hopes to get some medals in the game of shooting. Over the last one year, the superb players from the country have dominated the international tournaments and things are really looking rosy as we look towards Tokyo 2020. Among the shooters from India, there are two names that really stand out from the rest.

They are none other than Apurvi Chandela and Anjum Moudgil and they are the No 1 and No 2 rank holders in 10 m air rifle. Apurvi Chandela had clinched the gold medal in the World Cup in February and by the month of May, Chandela attained the first spot. In the Asian Games, that got held last year, Apurvi Chandela had won silver in the mixed rifle event. At the same time Anjum Moudgil had claimed the gold medal in the mixed event at the World Cup and this helped her to jump up the rankings to the 2nd spot.


Olympics is still a long way to go and both of they should not take their current positions for granted. They need to maintain this level of consistency till the 2020 Olympics.


While talking about the achievement, Apurvi Chandela said that it was really amazing to watch India at the top on the women's 10m air rifle and also in air pistol category. She said that the Indian shooters are really doing well and it was indeed a great year for them.

Anjum Moudgil admitted that she is a little nervous as the Asian Championship is around the corner, but she says that such nervousness is quite a normal thing for her.

Actually, Apurvi aspired to become a sports journalist, while Anjum Moudil dreamed of becoming a pilot
