3 World Cups in 2016, Pooja qualified in the finals in 2 of them and finished 4th in both, and finished 11th in the other one. While Ayonika and Apurvi were not even close to reaching the finals in any of the 3 World cup events this year, are we going to be stubborn like the archery team and not send Pooja in Rio? Come on guys, pick players in form.

 

As per the ISSF rules the Indian NRAI  can only exchange one quota ........ we have already done it ....there is no more possible change we can do now, so no possible change in any more players  , let us cheer the players who are going we have no choice now

We are seeing very good result in shooting, Armed forces played a big role in creating a poll of good shooters in India. I think Army can easily repeat their shooting success in Equestrian, Canoeing,

Nitin are you sure, this is not about exchanging quota, unlike the entry of Manavjit Sandhu, here we have 2 quota we can send any shooter having an MQS, that's what I understood from the Qualification Rules. Anyway thanks, can you re-check once pls.

I am 100% sure of it ....in fact few of the countries ( GER for example  ) had to drop a second shooter to accommodate a cross qualification because they could not exchange a second quota place

found a link for your reference...page 5 ... https://www.usashooting.org/library/Policies_and_Procedures/OG_Rio_2016_-_ISSF_Qualification_System_EN_-_Version_Feb_2014.pdf

 

An NOC/ISSF Member Federation may request to change a maximum of one (1) quota place in one (1) event for one (1) quota place in any other event if available and if the NOC does not have the maximum number of quota places for that event.

Ok, so say if a shooter with a quota gets injured, we loose a quota.

Yes if we have already used that 1 change which we have ( we had exchanged sanjeev rajputs quota for Manavjit )

Yes my back of the envelope calculations   also showed that they should beat BEL and ARG ...............But maybe the official table would be released soon .... I am surprised they take so long to release the new table

I saw so many lists for possible medallists so my listicle :d

 

Top 20 Medal chances for India( this is in no order ) 

 

1. 50m Prone - Gagan Narang - Medalllist last year in one of the Fort benning world cups 2015  , has the big occasion temperament 

2. 10m Air rifle(m) - Abhinav Bindra - Big occasion shooter , is showing signs of a return to form ( in baku world cup was leading finals after 2 rounds  by a big margin ), a gold medallist has the temperament to shoot ( only a fool would say that Abhinav cannot medal in Rio..... In case any of you want to dispute that :d )  

3. 10m Air Pistol(m) - Jitu Rai - Bronze medal at the chongwon world cup - consistently has been in finals - One of Indias top hopes 

4. 50m Air Pistol(m)- Jitu Rai - Currently Ranked world number 2 in this event , silver at the world championships - a class act 

5. Skeet(m) - Mairaj - The only Indian who won a medal at the Rio World cup this year - currently ranked world no 4 ( never thought we would have a skeet prospect )

6. 10m Air rifle(w) - Apurvi - broke the world record last year , last years world cup final silver medal 

7. Womens Badminton - Sania Nehwal - world championship silver medallist , in good form 

8. Mens Hockey Team - Last two major tournaments - Silver and Bronze 

9. Tennis Mixed Doubles - With Sania in the team we have one of the best women's players with a very small field just two good matches and you are in with a medal 

10.Boxing - Shiva - A medal at the world championship ....... 

11. Boxing - Vikas - Indias finest boxer reached quarters of the world championship , is a world championship medallist 

12. Wrestling - Narsingh - The only indian till now to win the olympic quota at the world championship , shows his class 

13. Wrestling - Yogi- Missed the world championship due to injury but his form at the asian qualifiers was fearsome 

14. Wrestling - Vignesh - Awesome form at the last qualifiers , again her form was so good 

15. Archery womens team - Current world championship silver medal , has consistently been medal-ling 

16. Archery womens individual - Deepika is a true championship so many medals  , was immature last time in her first olympics , now is more mature 

17. 10m air pistol ( w) - Heena Sidhu has been ranked world number one in 2014 was in fine form in the run up to the asian qualifiers 

18. Womens weightlifiting - Mirabhai Chanu in the 48 Kgs has lifted 192 which puts her in the elite list of top 3-4 weightlifters, she has been consistenly improving in the last few months and I feel will reach the level of 194 or so at Rio ..that should fetch her a medal with some luck 

19. Womens Vault - The fast improving Dipa Kramakar came 5th at the world championship , she has been getting a lot of support and will improve further , a medal prospect  in gymnastics 

20. Womens Badminton - PV sindhu - two times world championship bronze medallist is definately a prospect
