India’s teenage shooting sensation Divyansh Singh Panwar was just 12 years old when he started his shooting practice at the Jangpura shooting range.
Olympians are not born overnight, and it takes years of practice to reach the pinnacle of success. From dedicated training regimens to perfecting his sport-specific skills, world no.1 Panwar bagged India’s fourth quota for the Tokyo Olympics by clinching silver in the men’s 10m Air Rifle event at the 2019 Beijing World Cup and is determined to make it big at the Tokyo Olympics.
Divyansh will be participating in Tokyo in 10m Air Rifle Men (Scheduled on 25th July 2021) and 10m Air Rifle Mixed Team Event (teaming up with Elavenil Valarivan) (Scheduled on 27th July 2021) where he has a great chance of winning gold. He and Valarivan have been one of the most successful pairs in this new event, ever since its inception three years back.
