India Rifle Association Wants Better Representation With Olympic Association
The National Rifle Association of India is "miffed with the Indian Olympic Association for not giving it fair 'representation' despite the shooters’ consistent medal-winning efforts in top international events, including the Olympics," according to the PTI. NRAI President Raninder Singh said, "Overall, I think India finished 45th in London (Olympics), and in shooting we finished eighth. Our aim is to breach the top-five in Rio (2016) and be in the top-three in Tokyo (2020)." Asked if the NRAI tried to speak to the IOA regarding representation, Raninder "responded in the negative." The NRAI and IOA have "not been on good terms for some time now" (PTI, 2/25).
