Saurabh Chaudhary is ready to make his comeback from shooting range at the ISSF President’s Cup. The Meerut-born is amongst the seven shooters who will compete in the prize money event scheduled to be held from November 3-to 24 in Warsaw, Poland.

The Shooters will compete in individual and mixed team events – with the teams being decided by a random draw. Competitors from different countries can be paired together at the ISSF President’s Cup.

The Indian shooters joined the national camp for the competition on October 17 at Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range.

In the rifle events, Anjum Moudgil and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar are the only Indians invited to the ISSF President’s Cup. Both shooters made their Olympic debuts this year. However, they had a disappointing outing in Tokyo.

While Anjum will be competing in her first competition since the Olympics, Aishwary shone at the Junior World Championships held in Lima, Peru. The youngster shattered the world record and also won the gold medal.

Saurabh Chaudhary and Abhishek Verma will be the two men’s individual 10m air pistol to represent India. Manu Bhaker and Yashaswini Singh Deswal will compete in women’s 10m air pistol at the ISSF President’s Cup.

Manu Bhaker will also compete in women’s 25m pistol event alongside two-time Olympian Rahi Sarnobat.
