Gagan Narang's Foundation to shortlist 30 shooters for Project Leap

Pune, May 15 (UNI) The Gagan Narang Sports Promotion Foundation’s (GNSPF) will shortlist 30 shooters from 300 applicants for the Project Leap.
The selected youth and junior shooters across India will be part of the third year of this elite programme which aims for excellence at grassroot.

The GNSPF backed Project Leap trained shooters are already making strong impression at the international arena. An unprecedented 304 shooters have applied for the trial which will continue from 16th May to 22nd May at the state-of-the-art Gun for Glory Shooting Academy in Pune.

Like last year, the trial has been made open for all shooters of India falling under the age group of under-21 and the final selected best shooters will be trained by highly qualified and experienced International Rifle & Pistol coaches and mentored by the ace Olympic medallist himself.
"We initiated Project Leap with an ambitious goal of finding India its 10 best shooters as part of Vision 2024. We knew the potential of the Project Leap but had to start modest; the results have been phenomenal," Narang said.
"Backed with the success of last two years we have rolled out the project for all youth and junior shooters with the hope of unearthing more talent who have been untapped so far," added he.
