Will the shooter from Jaipur hit the bull's eye in Athens

Thru Sun network

Most of the Indian shooters have exposed themselves to the latest training abroad and appear ready for the Olympic Games in Athens where the competition runs from August 14 to 22.

The best Indian bet for a medal would be in men's double trap through World No. 3 Major Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who has grown in stature by leaps and bounds in the world arena. He has gone from strength to strength after taking the bronze in the ISSF World Cup in New Delhi last year and he is viewed as a serious threat by his main rivals.

The 34-year-old Master in Strategic Studies from Jaipur won the gold in the Sydney World Cup earlier this year with a score of 187 (141 46) that saw him gaining in confidence. Recently he won another gold in the Czech Masters.

He also won the bronze in the World Shooting Championship in Nicosia, Cyprus last year recording a total of 189 points.
