Additional Information Start of sporting career

Reason for taking up this sport
She took up the sport because she had always loved guns and was becoming bored with her dentistry studies. She was encouraged by her father Rajveer, who also represented India in shooting. (bhaskar.com, 24 Nov 2013; rediff.com, 21 Mar 2012)

Ambitions
To win a medal at the Olympic Games. (Facebook page, 17 Apr 2014)

Training
She trains in Pune, India. "Unlike other shooters, I can't train for three or four hours in a day. I want to keep my interest in shooting and train for one hour on an average. If I train more, I lose my concentration. At the most I shoot around 70 pellets in a session." (indiatoday.in, 11 Nov 2013; indianshooting.com, 27 Jul 2009)

Most memorable sporting achievement
Winning gold and setting a world record at the 2013 World Cup Finals in Munich, Germany. (dnaindia.com, 12 Feb 2014)

Sporting philosophy / motto
"It is very important to be consistent. You may not shoot very high scores, but if your progress is steady, then it is not a problem. It should not be a one-off high followed by a lot of lows." (indiatimes.com, 15 Apr 2014)

General
OTHER ACTIVITIES
She is a brand ambassador for the anti-animal cruelty charity, PETA. "It was an honour for me to be chosen as the ambassador for this PETA campaign. I have been associated with many social activities in the past, but this campaign was very close to my heart with a strong message of saving animals, and saying no to hunting. I feel that as a sportsperson and as a shooter, it's my duty to pass on this strong message to the public, that it's illegal to hunt animals." (indiatimes.com, 08 Aug 2014)

NATIONAL FIRST
She became the first ever Indian pistol shooter to win gold at a World Cup Finals, after securing victory at the 2013 World Cup in Munich, Germany. (intoday.in, 11 Nov 2014)
