Shooting Players Are Preparing For The National Game With Bricks Instead of Rifles

Sep 22, Kathmandu: Arnav Ghimire of Dang Tulsipur-6 is the gold medalist in the shooting. Having won gold in the 8th and 7th National Games. He is aiming for a hat-trick by winning gold in the 9th as well. But he is not confident that the goal will be achieved.

The reason why the national champion, who has participated in the Asian Games, is not confident about the goal of gold this year is poor preparation. He is preparing for the 9th national sports competition to be held in Gandaki province. He does not have a gun in his hand now, instead of a gun, he is practicing with bricks.

Two rifles for shooting in Dang have also been damaged. "We need a rifle to aim and shoot," he said, "but we don't have a working rifle." We are only practicing holding by lifting bricks.

Two rifles for shooting in Dang have also been damaged. "We need a rifle to aim and shoot," he said, "but we don't have a working rifle." We are only practicing holding by lifting bricks. The players are also sad because they are not able to practice with targets. He said, "Unless you can use a gun, you can't even know about a player's game." But now there is nothing.

President Choudhary says that even the best players could not be trained because they could not improve. "The players are disappointed when they are sent directly to the tournament without being able to shoot," he added, "How can the players play a good game with such preparation?"

He said that despite repeated requests for game equipment (rifles and pistols) for practice, there was no response. "We have been telling the shooting association that we want rifles and pistols, but they have not heard," Choudhary said.

There was no place where there was no gun to practice shooting. He said that he came outside and practiced under the open sky as he could not find a place to practice the game. He said that although he used to practice in the badminton-covered hall, now there is no room for practice.

The president of the Nepal Shooting Association, Pushpadas Shrestha, said that even though he heard that the players practice with bricks, he did not understand. "Until now, we were not able to understand about it because there was good reporting," he said, "I have heard the rumor, but I have not been able to understand what it is."

He said that there is a problem with the union because of a lack of materials. However, he said that the members of the association have been assigned to their respective areas along with the sports materials. "We don't have enough material", he said, "We have not been able to deliver to all places even if we wanted to."
