Indian shooters to compete in Zagreb World Cup in June

The Olympic Games-bound Indian shooters, who are scheduled to train in Zagreb, Croatia, from May 11, will also compete in the World Cup starting there on June 22.

The International Sport Shooting Federation announced that Croatia would host the last World Cup before the Tokyo Olympics that start on July 23.

A 13-member Indian team will also compete in the European Shooting Championships, starting on May 20 in Croatia. The European competition will be organised in rifle, pistol and shotgun events.

Last month, the Baku World Cup, which was scheduled to start on June 22, was cancelled due to rising cases of Coronavirus in Azerbaijan.

The Indian shooting squad leaves for Croatia early next week in a charter flight.

India has won 15 Olympic quota places, including two in skeet. The elite shooters will now train in Europe until the start of the Olympics.
