Pair events to be restored

New Delhi: India on Monday scored a victory of sorts when the Commonwealth Shooting Federation agreed to restore all the pair events in the next Commonwealth Games.

“On behalf of India, I strongly protested against the scrapping of pair events from the current CWG,” the National Rifle Association of India (NRA) advisor Baljit Singh Sethi said from Glasgow. “In the meeting, they agreed to bring back those events from the next edition.”

The scrapping of pair events in rifle and pistol would cost India dear in Glasgow. Out of the 30 medals won in the shooting range in the 2010 CWG in Delhi, 17 came in pair events.
