Ms. Namita Nayyar
Today you hold the highest World Number 3 ranking in 10m air rifle and have won medals & accolades both in India & abroad. Looking back when you took up shooting while studying in Sacred Heart Senior Secondary School in Chandigarh, it’s been a long journey. Throw some light on moments that led you to decide to take up shooting at a competitive level?
Ms. Anjum Moudgil
I joined NCC in my school back in Chandigarh and I did go for shooting when I joined NCC because my mom had an interest and did shooting while in college so I started to go for the camps for shooting and eventually started liking it because how different it was from different other sports and the best thing about it was being an individual sport and the feeling of shooting a bullet was something that made it much better.
