Narang takes big leap in honing budding shooters2012 London Olympics bronze medallist Gagan Narang is already credited with nurturing talented shooters like Heena Sidhu, Apurvi Chandela and Rahi Sarnobat, who all trained at his ‘Gun for Glory’ shooting academies for years. For rising stars like Pooja Ghatkar, Mahima and Turhi Agarwal, the 10m air rifle shooter is perfectly playing the role of a mentor. Always ready to give back to the sport, which gave him all the name and fame, the 34-year-old Narang is ready with another ambitious programme — Project Leap — to produce future Olympics champions.He spoke to The Tribune about the project:Excerpts:Tell us about the programme? Project Leap is about identifying young and talented shooters and train them into medal-winning prospects at the international championships, including Olympics. For the first year, we have begun by selecting 23 out of the 57 shortlisted shooters. The shooters went through a trial, where they were asked to showcase their scientific, physical, meta-cognitive and technical skills. Out of the chosen ones, Mahima and Elanevil are already part of the junior national team. The selected shooters will attend a fully-funded Elite Junior Excellence Camp at the Balewadi Sports Complex in Pune and will be trained by world-renowned coaches Anton Belak (Slovakia) and Kim Seonil (Korea).How does the programme work?The methodology is to organise five camps of 12 days each over a period of one year. It’s about getting 60 days of elite coaching from foreign experts. We have divided the age groups in five categories — 10-12, 12-14, 14-16, 16-18 and 18-20. There will be a dedicated team of professionals to monitor a shooter’s scores, basics and technical skills. When theses shooters get selected for the Indian team, they don’t have to start from the scratch. The coaches at the junior national camps would only be required to finetune their skills. If we are targeting a medal at the 2020 or 2024 Olympics, we have to start from the grassroots level. …but what after 60 days of training?These shooters would return to the Gun for Glory regional academies. Their progress would be monitored by the academy coaches, who have already been trained by foreign coaches. It’s about ensuring that the training imparted to these shooters remains in sync with the programme. The shooters would then be encouraged to participate in domestic competitions to break into the national team.What about your own plans for next year’s CWG and Asian Games?I have just made a comeback into the national team in the 10m air rifle event. At the moment, I am focussing on air rifle and 50m rifle prone events. Prone would, of course, go out of the 2020 Olympic programme. But, it would remain there until the World Championships next year. So, for the CWG, Asian Games and World Championships, I would compete in the air rifle and 50m prone. After the Worlds, I will start focussing on 50m rifle 3-positions.

Gunning for gloryGagan Narang Sports Promotion Foundation’s new Academy aims to train the shooting champions of the futureShooting has been a major medal winning sport at the Summer Olympics for India. Ever since the silver medal haul of Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore in the Athens Olympics in 2004, Indian shooters have consistently brought laurels to the country. In 2008, it was Abhinav Bindra’s gold that made the nation sit up and watch the growing prowess of our shooters. In the London Olympics of 2012, Vijay Kumar Sharma claimed a silver and Gagan Narang bagged a bronze. True, our shooters returned empty handed from Rio Olympics last year, but there is no denying the fact that the shooters would go all out on a medal hunt in the 2020 Olympics scheduled to be held in Tokyo.Providing impetus to that effort is Gagan Narang Sports Promotion Foundation (GNSPF) which has opened the Gun For Glory Shooting Academy (GFG) in 17 centres across the country. The latest addition is the Bengaluru unit of the GFG located at VeloCT, off Sarjapur Road. VeloCT is a multi-sports development centre by SportsVilla Ventures Pvt Ltd.According to Narang and VeloCT, the objective of the Academy is to create awareness on shooting in the city and state, and thus unearth young talent to groom them to national and international levels.Narang is quite optimistic about the success of the Bengaluru Centre. “I wish to reach out to talented kids and nurture them to become world champions by providing them the right guidance at the right time with the right equipment, ” says the Olympian.The training programme at GFG will be monitored by senior coaches from Pune headquarters, who are certified by the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF). Narang himself will visit the centre to check on the progress of the trainees. The Academy has the capacity to train 14 wards at a time. There is a resident ISSF certified coach and as the number of trainees increases, more coaches will be hired for the centre.There is no selection process for the beginner level and all shooting enthusiasts can enrol in the programme. The minimum age for enrolment is 11 years.GFG’s Bengaluru unit has been set up in VeloCT’s state-of-the-art complex with 14 shooting lanes for 10 metre air rifle and air pistol practice and possesses latest training equipment.Piyush Sarode, one of the founder of VeloCT says “We are privileged to be associated with GFG, which has been doing good work at the grass root level. Our aim is to bring shooters, shooting fans and the public on the same stage. With GFG, we hope to create world class champions.”It is not just shooting that enjoys pre-eminence at VeloCT, other major sports are also provided with the best of facilities. Currently, it has a football turf and a cricket pitch operational. Football has a FIFA two-star-certified artificial pitch and is suitable for a seven-a-side game and the arena is floodlit. VeloCT also has an exclusive tie-up with the English Premier League Club, Arsenal’s soccer schools for training. In the near future, VeloCT plans to add an indoor heated semi-Olympic sized swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, besides a fitness centre.The training programme at Gun For Glory Shooting Academy will be monitored by senior coaches from Pune headquarters
