India has several medal prospects in shooting at the 2020 Olympics, according to 2008 Olympic gold medallist Abhinav Bindra.

“India has several medal prospects, but taking anyone’s name is not correct,” Bindra said, when reporters asked him about promising shooters who can win medals at the next Olympics. The 2020 Olympic Task Force, of which Bindra was a part, has submitted its report to the union sports ministry two months ago, he said.
