While the sporting world has come to a standstill with events and tournaments getting cancelled, National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) decided to conduct the Olympic trials at Dr. Karni Singh Range in Tughlaqabad.

Shreya Agarwal shot 631.2 in 10m Air Rifle to beat Elavenil Valarivan (629.9) and Anjum Moudgil (626.9). Apurvi Chandela who was in extraordinary form last year, winning two gold medals at the World Cup was not at her best and could only manage 624.4.
