What do you think we might end up getting this time around vs 11 of last time.. I am happy that most of our guys have got quota this time in initial WCs where competition is tough and they also won medals ( most Golds) which augurs well for future ... However realistically we may still getdepleter wrote: ↑Sun Apr 28, 2019 6:08 pmCompared to 2016 qualification, we have definitely improved. In rio qualification, by this time(after 2 world cups each of rifle/pistol and shotgun) we had 3 quotas - Apurvi Chandela in 10m air rifle, Jitu Rai in 50m pistol and Gagan Narang in 50m rifle prone. But 50m pistol and 50m rifle prone are removed from this edition. Even then Jitu would have won a 10m air pistol quota as he finished 3rd in the first pistol world cup.So, we only had 2 quotas then compared to 5 now with more quotas actually being distributed then when compared to now (like in 2014 world championships 10m airfle and pistol events had 6 quotas while 2018 WC only had 4, while the first 2 world cups had 3 quotas each then compared 2 quotas each now)
1- 10m Rifle
1-50M 3P (long shot but I think we might get one in Asian championships later )
0-1 25m - Anish is high hope but the kid is bit of on and
0-1 - Kynen is shooting well so still hopeful specially during Asian championship where all Kuwaitis might already have quota won before
1-2 this includes 10m and 25m pistol
I don’t think we have much of a chance in 50m women 3P specially with Anjum not eligible for one.. same for women trap and skeet ..
So I would say 8-11 is where we will end up this time too .. 11 will be pretty good given that number of events where Olympic quota on offer have gone down .. 8 will be slight disappointment but I guess not end of the world ..
