Suhl [Germany], June 21 (ANI): The International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup is all set to kick-start from June 22 in Suhl, Germany.
The Gun For Glory (GFG) team from India has departed to Germany after getting some good competition practice at the 18th KSS Memorial Shooting Championship.
Five Indian shooters from the GFG shooting academy will look to continue their momentous run at the blue-riband event.
The talented youngsters who have tuned themselves up for the event after rigorous regimes at their respective GFG academies will look to leave their mark at the event.
While Pruthiviraj Avachi will participate in the 50m rifle prone junior men event, Elavenil Valarivan and Shreya Agrawal will compete in the 10m rifle individual and team event.
Jabalpur's Mahima Agrawal will look to leave a solid impression in the 10m pistol junior women category (Individual).
The lone shooter in the 50m pistol category from GFG is Anushka Patil who will make her debut appearance in the shooting affair.
Elavenil, who had set an unprecedented score of 631.4 to etch her name in the history books, will look to carry forward her red-hot form from the currently ongoing KSS Memorial Championship and prove her mettle when she features in Germany for the second time at the ISSF Junior World Cup.
Even though she set a yardstick in her last outing, the lass from Gujarat seemed confident and said, "I am not feeling any pressure and I'm looking forward to the Junior World Cup and hopefully I can clinch more medals for my country."
The ISSF World Cup in Germany will be an eight-day affair concluding on June 29. (ANI)
