Mairaj Ahmed Khan Shooting
Mairaj is the first ever India skeet shooter to qualify for the Olympics

It had been a disappointing 10 days for India at the ISSF Shooting World Cup in Rio De Janerio, until Mairaj Ahmad Khan, late on Sunday night created history by becoming the first ever Indian to win a World Cup medal in skeet shooting, winning the silver medal in a tight contest.

The 40-year-old was tied on 14 points with Marcus Svensson of Sweden and lost out on the Gold in a shoot off.In Sepetmber 2015, Mairaj had become the 1st ever Indian skeet shooter to book a berth into an Olympics, and hopefully, in just over 3 months’ time, he can take it a step higher and win the coveted Olympic medal at the same venue.
