Trap shooter Manavjit Singh Sandhu signed by Anglian Medal Hunt
Ace trap shooter, Manavjit Singh Sandhu, a gold medalist at the Tucson World Cup in USA last month has been signed by Anglian Medal Hunt. Sandhu is hoping to acquire a quota place for the 2016 Olympic Games and will be competing in the Commonwealth and Asian Games this year.
Sandhu expressed his delight at the signing saying “I am glad to be associated with Anglian Medal Hunt Company which has taken great steps towards the development of Olympic sports in India. They have taken some fantastic initiatives to help sports people and have a different approach, which is very refreshing to see.”
The Indian sharpshooter, who had last won at the World Cup stage four years ago, produced some excellent shooting to clinch the men’s trap gold medal ahead of two-time Olympic champion Michael Diamond of USA at the ISSF Shotgun World Cup in Tucson. He will be competing in the upcoming ISSF World Cup in Almaty, Kazakhstan, after which the Indian shotgun team for the Commonwealth Games will be selected.
Anglian Medal Hunt, a non-profit organisation, has at least 30 athletes contracted with them at present, some of them as young as 11 years old.
