Manavjit Singh Sandhu Biography

One of the three veterans who will be travelling with the shooting contingent for Rio, Manavjit Singh Sandhu has had a staggering shooting career, spanning over 15 years. Sandhu first broke into the limelight after winning the silver in the team Trap event at the Bangkok Asian Games and then showed his mettle in the individual category, winning the bronze in the World Cup held in New Delhi and then winning the silver two years later at the World Cup, held in Kerrville. Sandhu created history in 2006 when he became the first Indian to win Gold at the World Shooting Championships in Zagreb and won the country’s highest sporting honour that year, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna for his exploits. 2009 and 2010 proved to be fruitful for the shooter in both World Cups and Commonwealth Games and his legacy continued to grow. Now heading into his fourth Olympics, Sandhu will hope to achieve his elusive dream of winning an Olympic medal and add yet another feather to his cap.
