One of India’s finest exponents of trap shooting, former world champion Manavjit Singh Sandhu is hoping to be fourth time lucky and says he is experienced enough to “peak at the right time” in the upcoming Rio Olympic Games.

The 39-year Manavjit, a former world number one in trap shooting, will be competing in his fourth Olympics, and says the experience gained in all these years will keep him in good stead when he lines up to shoot at the shotgun range.

“Being my fourth Games, I feel I am experienced enough to prepare well and be able to peak at the right time. I am in good form and feel I am well prepared,” Manavjit, a Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Awardee, said.

“Manav is one of the best trap shooters in the world and it is a surprise that he does not have an Olympic medal already, having won all there is to win in shooting including the crown that shooters most seek - the World Championship gold,” Raninder said.

Manavjit is confident India can better the two medals at the London Games four years ago.
