Shooters feel the heat in oppressive conditions


The shooters are feeling the heat, literally. Three days before the Tokyo Olympics open, the marksmen and markswomen are struggling to carry out their last few training sessions, thanks to a combination of the Japanese capital’s hot and humid weather and the convertible practice facility at the Asaka Shooting Range.

The all-purpose practice hall means shooters of every event—50m, 25m and 10m—are training in the same facility one after another. The 10m competition is held in an indoor facility but, in this case, it is looking like an outdoor range. Mostly bearing the brunt of the scorching summer heat here are the jacket and trouser-wearing rifle shooters.

India will be represented by an unprecedented 15 shooters in the upcoming Games.
