Sarnobat had suffered a serious elbow injury last year, but did not let this hurdle stop her from her practise. She realised she had to undergo certain changes with her technique, she persuaded Munkhbayar Dorjsuren, a world champion and Olympic medallist from Germany who has claimed Sarnobat has always been a high-level shooter.


Sarnobat had won two gold at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and had a bronze in the 25m pistol pairs event at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

This year, until now, India has bagged 15 medals in all – 4 gold, 3 silver and 8 bronze.

A proud moment captured.

We are looking forward for more glorious achievements by Indian players at Asian Games and congratulate those who have won until now!
