Tokyo Games: Ahead of the Olympics, Indian Skeet Shooter Angad Vir Singh Bajwa receives lessons from a distance from Nigerian coach | Olympic News



Angad Vir Singh Bajwa’s Olympic preparation for Indian skeet shooter has a special flavor. Currently in Italy, Bajwa is “receiving his lessons from a distance” from Norwegian foreign coach Tore Brovold, who was training with members of Kuwait and Qatar national teams in the northern Italian town of Lonato. It’s quite different for the rest of the country in Tokyo, in Zagreb, Croatia, in the same place, compared to the program they are training with a few coaches.

Mairaj Ahmad Khan, who will be filming with Bajware at the Tokyo men’s skeet event in Tokyo, is in the final stretch of training in another Italian town under the command of former coach Ennio Falco.

“Angad Tore is receiving his training lessons from Brovold from afar. And he is practicing with shooters in Qatar and Kuwait,” a source in the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) told PTI on Friday.

“They were training together with Ennio Falco but Angad came to Lonaton after they both got vaccinated in Croatia. I think his coach wanted to train in Lonaton,” he added.

Norwegian shooter Brovold won a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics and gold at the prestigious ISSF World Cup Final the same year. Bajwa, who has a bunch of shotguns at home and tried to shoot a gun before switching to skateboarding, has been in constant contact with his coach during video outings caused by COVID last year, something that has helped him get better.

Bajwa and Mairaj went from training base in Montecatin (Italy) to Zagreb last Thursday. While training for the upcoming Tokyo Games in Italy, Indian skeet shooters skipped the ISSF World Cup in Osijek, Croatia with Falco’s insistence, but decided to travel more than 1,000 km across the European continent to get vaccinated.

After Falco recommended skeet shooting not to compete in the Osijek World Cup, and to continue in Italy, the NRAI noted that it would not be easy to vaccinate both shooters because of the Italian government’s policy against inoculating foreigners.

However, thanks to the efforts of the Indian Sports Authority, the NRAI and the main Croatian Marksman Peter Gorsa, the two shooters managed to get their shots in Zagreb without doing too much. Bajwa holds the world record in skating with 60 to 60, achieved in the 2018 Asian Shotgun Championship in Kuwait.

He fired another 60/60 next year in New Delhi to get Mairaj on his way to defend his Nationals crown.
