Additional information

DIFFERENT LEVEL
World No.1 in double trap as of 1 Nov. 2017. Only second Indian shotgun shooter to top that table, after Ronjan SODHI. (espn.com.au, 23 Oct 2017)

VICTORY
Won gold in double trap at 2017 Commonwealth Shooting Championships in November 2017 at Belmont - a test event for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. (shootingaustralia.org, 3 Nov 2017)


COMMITMENT
Pet event, the double trap, has been scrapped from the Olympic program, causing many double trap shooters to switch to single trap or skeet in order to have a future in the sport. He will continue with double trap because it remains a medal sport for Commonwealth and Asian Games. "I will start practising single trap after the (2017) World Cup Final and only shoot it full-time after the Asian Games next year (2018)." (espn.com.au, 23 Oct 2017)
