Pawan Singh to be the jury at Olympic for the 2nd time in a row

Pune, July 9, 2024: National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) Joint Secretary General Pawan Singh has added another feather to his decorated hat as he is set to become the first-ever Indian jury to be selected for back-to-back Olympic Games in Shooting Sports. After becoming the only Indian to officiate at the Tokyo Olympics’ shooting events, Pawan Singh has been trusted by the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) to once again become part of the four RTS (Result, Timing, Score) Jury members to officiate at the Paris Olympic Games. Pawan is the only Indian official to officiate at Olympic Games in Shooting Sport.

“I am humbled and proud to represent my country in my successive Olympic Games as Jury official. I would like to thank the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) and the ISSF for their support and trust in my work,” Pawan said.

“The Paris Games will be very special for me for more than one reason. It is going to be my second Olympics, and India will be sending their biggest shooting contingent. We will be having 21 shooters competing for 27 medals at Paris, which is second after China,” he said.

“One more big reason for me to be happy is the news of my dear friend Gagan Narang getting selected as Chef-de-Mission of the Indian contingent,” Pawan added.

Pawan and Gagan are the co-founder of Gun For Glory shooting Academy (GFG). Two shooters from the Gun For Glory academy, Elavenil Valarivan and Ramita, are also part of the Indian shooting team and will represent the country in Women’s 10m air rifle events.

GFG has won a total 330 International Medals since its inception.

Recently in the Olympic Selection Trials, six shooters from GFG participated in various categories. Elavenil and Ramita qualified for Paris Olympics by winning the trials, during these trials both performed excellently. Ramita in the last qualification shot an incredible score of 636.4 and Elavenil in the finals shot 254.3, an unofficial world record.

Being director of NRAI education program, Pawan has also conducted many courses for judges and jury.
