Isles' shooter Mr. Mohsin earns laurels

Port Blair, Sept 12: The ace shooter, Mohsin Khan, was introduced to the islanders at a function organized by Innovative Artist Welfare Association (IAWA) of India on Sept 11, 2018 at Junglighat. It is a proud moment for these islands, that the sport which is yet out of favour in our islands, Mr. Khan bagged the second position in that sport.
Mr. Khan etched his name in the sporting arena clinching Silver in the small bore-free Rifle Prone (National Rifle) 50 mtrs in the individual category in the All India G.V Mavalankar Shooting Championship held recently. 
Speaking on the occasion, Mohammed Jadwet said, Mr. Mohsin is very passionate about shooting. It is for the first time that an islander clinched Silver medal in Shooting. Around 4500 shooters from different parts of the country participated in the championship. Majority of athletes opting for shooting as career in sports are from the military background as there necessary infrastructure is available. Unfortunately, the sport is not so popular in our islands. It's an expensive sport and we need to build adequate infrastructure to motivate budding talents to take up shooting. We will approach the administration and Sports Councils in this regard soon," he added.
