Narang on a comeback trail in 10m air rifle Gagan Narang is not losing sleep over missing the Asian Games bus this time. After winning five medals (two silver and three bronze) in two Asian Games, the ace shooter will not participate in the Indonesia mega event which starts from August 18. Narang cited rule changes as one of the main reasons for not taking part in the Asian Games for the first time. He is the No.1 and No. 2 in prone (50m three-position and 50m) in the country but unfortunately this event has not been included in the Asian Games. The ace shooter, who is making a comeback in 10m air-rifle event, is No.3 in this event in the country and as there are no team events, he does not find a place in the team. “After Olympics, I did not focus much in prone as I wanted to make a comeback in 10m air rifle event in which I won the bronze medal in London Olympics. After a long time, I’m back in air rifle event now.’’ The Hyderabad-based shooter said in a way he stands to gain by missing the Asian Games as he will be able to focus for World Championship which will be held from August 31 to September 15 at Changwon in Korea. “I’m going to the World Championship, which is immediately after the Asian Games. For me, it was beneficial as back-to-back events could have been difficult for a shooter to handle.’’ Narang said this World championship is very important as it will be qualification tournament to 2020 Tokyo Olympics. “I have one medal and the shooting World championship is held once in four years unlike badminton. The World Championship is much tougher than Olympics. The top shooters come and there are three members in the team. This meet is also the Olympic qualification for 2020 Games.’’ The 35-year-old Narang owes his comeback to 10m air-rifle event to coach Anton Balak of Slovakia. “I have been working with Balak and he is instrumental in my comeback in 10 air-rifle event. My target is Tokyo Olympics.’’ Starting his journey in the 90s, Narang said the game of shooting has come a long way in the country. “It is more than two decades since I got into big-time shooting. When I look back, I feel there are a lot of improvements since then. But it amazes me how we could achieve medals with limited resources those days. Now there is more of sports awareness and there is technology to help shooters. The shooters have become sharp, mentally and physically. We used to struggle to import the pellets and it is now much easier.’’ He admitted the Delhi Commonwealth Games was definitely the high point of his career. ”I won six gold medals and it ranks at the top of the list. I also got 600 out of 600 and my international journey started in Afro-Asian Games in Hyderabad in 2003, ’’ signed off Narang whose dream project, the Pune-based Gun For Glory has given a platform for many shooters to learn and excel from this academy.
