Trap shooter Shagun gets OGQ support

Last updated on: November 15, 2011 16:52 IST

Indian trap shooter Shagun Chowdhary, who qualified for the 2012 London Olympics, received a boost on Tuesday with Olympic Gold Quest (OGQ) funding her training.

"I am confident of doing well at the Olympics and now with OGQ's support I am sure of putting up a good show at the Games," said Chowdhary.

The 28-year-old qualified for the London Games after finishing 4th at the women's trap event at the Shotgun World Championship in Belgrade, Serbia in September.

For the Jaipur-born shooter, who works with ONGC, the sponsorship comes as a shot in the arm to fulfill her Olympic dreams.
