Ankur Mittal, Ahvar Rizvi Win Silver in Double Trap as India Win First Gold at Moscow Shotgun World Championship


NRAI 05 Sep 2017 , New Delhi, September 05, 2017: Ankur Mittal added a World Championship Silver to his kitty of medals (two Gold and a Silver) for the year, setting himself up for a final thrust back to where the year started- in the New Delhi ISSF World Cup Finals slated for October. In the process, he became only the fourth individual Indian Shotgun shooter at the senior level to win a medal at the World Championship after Dr. Karni Singh, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Manavjit Singh Sandhu.
 
At the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championship Shotgun being held at Moscow region’s Fox Lodge Shooting Range, Ankur, after shooting brilliantly throughout the day (topped qualifying with 145/150) and through the 80-shot final, narrowly lost out in the end to Russia’s Vitaly Fokeev. The Russian was also the 2006 World Champion. Fokeev took the crown with 68 to Ankur’s 66. Binyuan Hu of China took Bronze with 50.
 
Sangram Dahiya ended in 20th place with 135, while Md. Asab came in 23rd with 133 hits in the qualifying round. The trio combined for a fifth spot in the Team category with 413 points, where Italy won Gold with 418.
 
In the Junior Men’s event two Indians Shardul Vihan and Ahvar Rizvi topped qualifying to get into the top six. Shardul shot 139 to be the sole leader of the pack. Ahvar shot 138 and then topped a three-way shoot-off to determine positions, to qualify for the finals in second place.
 
In the Shoot-off, Ahvar shot 10 targets in a row to beat Australian Mitchell Iles-Crevatin (9) and Ying Qi (3) of China to the third and fourth qualifying spots.
 
Their efforts along with that of Shapath Bhradwaj’s effort of 124 meant that India won the Team Gold in the event with a combined score of 401. Italy won Silver with 389 and China Bronze with 387.
 
In the individual final, Ahvar carried his shoot-off momentum and shot brilliantly to lead for right till the end, but lost the Gold in the last two targets to talented Briton James Dedman. Ahvar finished with 66 out of 80 targets with Dedman a point ahead on 67. Dedman won Bronze in the senior category at the New Delhi World Cup stage event earlier this year, as well as a Junior World Cup Gold very recently in Italy.
 
Shardul was the first to bow out of the final in sixth position, shooting 19 targets out of the first 30.
 
Italy is on top of the medal table so far with six Gold medals and a total of 11 medals. India is in fourth spot with one Gold and two Silver medals. The Men’s and Women’s Skeet competitions now remain.

NRAI 03 Sep 2017 , New Delhi, September 03, 2017: The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), the governing body for the sport of Shooting in India, has welcomed the appointment of Shri Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore as the Hon. Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS), Government of India.

Shri Rathore, besides being an Olympic Silver medalist in Shooting, has won a medal in every top global and continental shooting competition, including the World Championship, World Cup Finals, World Cup stage, Asian Games as well as Asian Championship.

Speaking on the appointment of Shri Rathore, the NRAI President Shri Raninder Singh said, “I want to lead the federation and the entire shooting fraternity in congratulating Shri Rathore on his appointment. He has been one of the most distinguished members of the Shooting family for years and his stellar achievements speak for themselves. His work in the Union Council of Ministers had already come in for a lot of praise and we strongly believe that knowing first-hand the challenges faced by sports and sportspersons in this country, he would add immense value to the development and growth of sports. We wish him all the very best in his new responsibility.”

Shri Rathore’s Silver medal in Men’s Double Trap Shooting at the Athens Olympics in 2004, made him the first ever Indian shooter to win a medal at the Olympics and at the time he was also only the fourth Indian post independence to win an individual Olympic medal.

Issue of GST on Sports Goods and Shooting Equipment Raised in Parliament


NRAI 04 Aug 2017 , New Delhi, August 4, 2017: Mr. Kalikesh Narain Singh Deo, MP and Senior Vice President, National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) raised the issue of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on Shooting and Sports equipment, in the Zero Hour of Lok Sabha on Friday, August 4, 2017.
 
Speaking in Parliament, the Mr. Singh Deo said, "shooting has been one of the highest medal winners for India in international sports events, including Asian and Olympic level Championship. Infact, India stands to gain most in terms of medals tally, if shooting is promoted.”
 
He further stated, “Earlier renowned shooters were exempt from payment of custom duty for importing guns and ammunition. This was instrumental in building an array of potential Olympic medal winners. However, the new GST regime levies higher tax on importing of such goods. This will adversely affect the spirit of sports in our country. It will especially reduce the potential of shooting to earn medals on behalf of India. I therefore request the Government to reconsider the GST tax structure of Sports Goods and Shooting Equipment in order to encourage participation of youngsters in the area of Sports.''
