Indian shooting scene at Olympics

Post by Woods » Thu Aug 05, 2021 10:14 pm

Recently, various news articles have been published related to the performance of Indian shooting players in Tokyo Olympics . I am sharing most of them at one place so that interested members may go through and express their opinions on whether it's all right or something very fundamental is wrong with this sport in our country .

The articles are very interesting specifically if a little attention paid when reading between the lines .
