The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) has signed a deal with JSW Sports — till the Paris Olympics in 2024 — to identify, train and develop top shooters for the Olympics.
As part of the agreement, JSW will fund NRAI’s high performance requirements to train shooters for the next two Olympics.
The shooters will also have access to JSW’s high performance resources and experts for training. The partnership opens doors for shooters to be trained at the world-class Inspire Institute of Sport (IIS), a premier training facility established by JSW in Karnataka.
The agreement was signed by Raninder Singh, president for NRAI and Parth Jindal, Director for JSW Sports.
“India has been a power house in the world of shooting. Our association with JSW reiterates our commitment to provide our shooters with greater access to world class resources, experts and training facilities,” said Raninder Singh.
“We endeavour to achieve systemic growth and sustainable results. We realise that the most effective way to achieve this in developing talent is to support systems. The NRAI has been one of the most successful federations over the past few years,” said Parth Jindal, emphasising the support to one of the best sports systems in the country.
