The Asian Games are finally underway, as the Indian athlete look to better their record on the continental level, after a successful outing at the Commonwealth games in Gold Coast, Australia, earlier this year.​​

Shooting has always been one of the sports that has captured the imagination of the Indian fans far and wide, with the likes of Abhinav Bindra, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore winning prestigious medals at the Olmpics, more than a decade back.​​

Now, however, the Indians have a number of young charges at their disposal. The likes of Manu Bhaker, Anish Bhanwala, have all gone on to win titles at the junior and the senior levels.​​

Now, the Indian contingent goes into the games with high hopes in shooting, with a good mixture of youth and experience. While the likes of Bhanwala and Bhaker will be the young guns, Heena Sidhu and Apurvi Chandela will be the experienced campaigners.
