Priyanka Maji: An Inspirational Story Passion is a very overlooked quality. Working on your craft for days and days with blinders on requires a very superior amount of dedication. Priyanka paints a clear picture of how important passion can be. She works a 9 hour shift at Dominos from noon to 10 at night. Prior to that, she puts in 3 hours of serious practice in hopes of mastering her sport; all this at the age of 22. She began rifle shooting four years ago with the NCC in Asansol, West Bengal. She received several accolades including a Bronze medal in her first All India NCC Inter Directorate Shooting Championship. While everything was going well she was challenged with a major obstacle. The thing about these obstacles is that they have the rightful authority to make or break a person. In Priyanka’s case, the obstacle not only made sure she came back stronger but also made her a very mature young adult. A young adult who has a mind open enough to dream big and a heart strong enough to work all out to achieve that dream. She is a rare concoction of the dreamers and the hard workers. Coming back to the obstacle; she could no longer practice shooting with NCC. Seeking a solution, Priyanka joined a private Shooting Club; however, the club had no Shooting Equipment and Rifle to support her. She didn’t give up though! With the support of her family, Priyanka decided to join the Gun for Glory (GFG) Shooting Academy, Pune: A decision that changed her life forever. To support her dream of shooting, Priyanka started working at Domino’s. It might not sound like much, but at her age, children are still testing their luck with the world. On the other hand, Priyanka has a goal in her mind and is willing to do anything to achieve this goal. When you are as focused as her, distractions rarely disrupt your routine. At GFG, Priyanka’s score has been steadily rising and she expects a Gold medal at the next National Competition. What’s more? She doesn’t have to worry about a weapon or a good coach anymore!

Recognition boost for Gagan Narang’s catch ’em young projectLondon Olympics bronze medallist Gagan Narang has been doing grassroot work for budding shooters for some time. In partnership with various state governments, his organisation — Gagan Narang Sports Promotion foundation — has opened 17 ‘Gun for Glory’ (GFG) shooting academies, to train youngsters.For outstanding work in mentoring and coaching, it was honoured by Tata Institute of Social Sciences at the TISS Leapvault CLO awards on Friday. In a chat with Express, the veteran shooter talked about his own and the foundation’s plans. It was soon after his stupendous performance at the 2010 CWG in Delhi, where he grabbed four gold medals, that he decided to start a sports promotion foundation. “After CWG, a lot of parents would approach me seeking guidance for their kids. To address the issue, I thought of starting the foundation.It was a way of giving back to the game, which has given me so much in life and the foundation started in 2011, ” the 34-year-old said on Saturday. Narang considers making the sport accessible his foundation’s biggest success. “Shooting is expensive. A gun costs anywhere between Rs 2.5-3 lakh. There is an entry-level barrier even for talented people. We provide trainees everything, from guns to jackets at a fee of Rs 5, 500. To remove the cost barrier is the best feeling, ” said Narang, who is preparing for the upcoming Commonwealth Shooting Championship and Asian Air Gun Championship.The 17 GFG academies have trained about 3, 500 students till now. “German gun manufacturer, Walther, has helped by providing guns free of cost.” Around two months ago, a new initiative — Project Leap — was started to identify next generation shooters who could be medal prospects at international events. Under the watchful eyes of Narang, 23 shooters from different parts of the country were selected after selection trials involving physical and technical skills.“These shooters will be fully funded. The total cost is estimated to be around Rs 1.2 crore, ” Narang noted. Asked who the future stars from the GFG academies could be, he said, “Youngsters like Mahima (Agarwal), Shreya (Agarwal) and Elavenil are already a part of the junior Indian team.” Shreya won silver at the recently concluded KSS Memorial Shooting Championship. What’s next? “We already have two academies here. A third one, in association with Sports Authority of Telangana State (SATS), named SATS-GFG Shooting Academy will be launched soon, ” Narang revealed.

Olympic medallist Gagan Narang says his ‘priority’ is active shooting despite taking up mentoring of lateHe may have taken to mentoring of late, but active shooting remains Gagan Narang’s number one priority and he says there is “no doubt” he is eyeing more international glory, including another shot at the Olympics.After a gap of one year, the London Olympic bronze medallist is back to his pet event – 10m air rifle – and he is gunning to hit top form.“Shooting is my No.1 priority, I love to be around the sport whether it is through mentoring, coaching or whether in terms of my shooting… Right now my own shooting is my number one priority, ” he told PTI during an interview at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Ranges on Thursday.The marksman, who has completed two decades in the sport, added, “I will continue to do it as long as I enjoy doing it. Nobody is in the team because they are shooting for 20 years. you are on the team because you are the best.” The 34-year-old, along with a full-fledged Indian shooting squad, will be leaving for Gold Coast, Australia, on Friday to compete in the Commonwealth Shooting Championships, a test event for next year’s Commonwealth Games.“… And if there is someone else better than me then why not. As long as I am enjoying my sport, shooting well, as long as I am able to win medals for the country I will continue to shoot.“Age is just a number. Every day is a new day and of course, as you progress, there is a different kind of challenges. Definitely, it’s important to have a good amount of drive and motivation, which I have. I am just going to go all out.”Summing up his journey so far, he said sometimes it’s hard to remain motivated after winning so many times across the world.“It’s been good, I have won every medal that was there at every level, sometimes finding motivation after winning so many medals is tough, but the Rio (Olympics) performances are also on the back of my mind and that is motivating .. I am giving it all I have got.”“You need to have long-term vision somewhere. I am taking it one competition at a time because you are as good as your last competition. I am taking it one step at a time towards a bigger goal.”If he makes it to the Tokyo 2020, it will be Narang’s fourth Olympic appearances.He has been mentoring the likes of Pooja Ghatkar and has also tied up the Olympic Gold Quest besides being actively involved with Project Leap and his own Gun For Glory Academy.“When you are mentoring you are always around the sport, whether it’s like project leap and the academy, I love sharing my knowledge and knowledge is something that needs to be always updated, it also needs to be refreshed.“When you are training somebody, a lot of times I have found that it helped me, too. For example, usually, they say that a good shooter or a great shooter can’t be a good coach because he is going to analyse things from his perspective.“But I have been fortunate to train under so many good coaches that I have kind of picked up different techniques from different coaches, and I think the more amount of information you have, sometimes that can get complicated, but, at the same time, it can help a lot of shooters at various levels.“I have seen that while trying to solve somebody’s problem I found that I also probably have the same problem so I thought let me also try and that has helped me.”He said he is constantly trying to keep himself updated with the changing trends in the sport.“As far as technical help is concerned I have friends all over the world and most of them are all top shooters and we kind of exchange notes if we know we have a problem.“Also these days because of social media you get to know about the latest equipment coming in the market much faster.

Narang on a comeback trail in 10m air rifleGagan 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.
