    The National Rifle Association of India on Tuesday announced a 23-member squad for the upcoming ISSF World Cup in Munich from 31 May to 8 June.

    The top three shooters recently seen in action during the Olympic Selection Trials are part of the squad. India will participate in all the 10 Olympic events.

    Speaking before the departure of the squad, NRAI senior vice president Kalikesh Narayan Sing Deo, said, ”Some shooters had some obvious queries about the programme, given it is in the lead up to the Olympics, but we had a word with all them and convinced them of the importance of shooting at the Munich World Cup and camp in France thereafter.”

    The team, after competing at Munich World Cup, will proceed to a camp in France before heading back for a two-week break at home.

    They will then assemble for a camp in Bhopal, before departing for the Olympic Games in Paris.
