Eighteen Indian shooters, including Olympian Mairaj Ahmad Khan, Asian Games medalist Anant Jeet Singh Naruka, and Raiza Dhillon, are set to compete at the ISSF World Cup Shotgun 2024 in Lonato, Italy, from June 10 to 18.

The Lonato stage, hosted at the Trap Concaverde Shooting Range, marks the sixth and final ISSF World Cup event of the 2024 season. While Indian shooters have earned nine medals in the shooting World Cups this year, the shotgun team has yet to secure a medal.

The Indian shotgun squad aims to change this at the Italy meet, which is also a significant event ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympics. India has already secured five quotas in shotgun shooting events for the upcoming Summer Games.

Two-time Olympian Mairaj Ahmad Khan and Asian Games and Asian Championships silver medalist Anant Jeet Singh Naruka will lead the men's skeet team. Lakshay Sheoran, Bhowneesh Mendiratta, and Prithviraj Tondaiman will represent the Indian men's trap contingent at Lonato.

In women's skeet, Maheshwari Chauhan, Raiza Dhillon, and Ganemat Sekhon, who together won the women's skeet team gold medal at the 2024 Asian Shooting Championships in Kuwait, will be competing.

Top contenders in women's trap include Manisha Keer, Shreyasi Singh, and Rajeshwari Kumari.

At Lonato, medals will be contested in five Olympic shooting categories: men's and women's skeet, men's and women's trap, and the mixed team skeet event.
