Shooting has widely been regarded as India's best bet to win medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics for a long time, thanks to some very consistent performances by the shooters from the country in the past few years. And now, the time has finally arrived to translate all that promise into something substantial.
A total of four Indian shooters will be in contention for medals on the Day 1 of the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics tomorrow. While Apurvi Chandela and Elavenil Valarivan will be in action in Women's 10m Air Rifle, the duo of Saurabh Chaudhary and Abhishek Verma will be seen fighting it out in Men's 10m Air Pistol event.
The day will start off with the Women's 10m Air Rifle qualification round, from where a total of eight shooters will make it to the final, which will be conducted just half an hour later.
The Women's event will be followed by the Men's 10m Air Pistol and is expected to follow the same schedule.
