Gagan Narang Sports Promotion Foundation (GNSPF) on Tuesday announced a long-term association with Olympic Gold Quest for its ambitious programme ‘Project Leap’.

The project, that has shortlisted 23 shooters (12 girls and 11 boys) from across the country, aims  at identifying and training young shooting talent in the country. The first leg of the rifle camp, held at Balewadi, Pune, concluded earlier this week. The 11 shooters in the air pistol category are currently undergoing training in Pune under Korean Coach Kim Seo-nil.

This is the first leg of the five camps that have been planned to nurture young talent into champion shooters under the joint partnership of GNSPF and OGQ.

“I am happy that we were able to realise our long-term vision with the help of OGQ not only through funding but going much deeper into sport science, nutrition and recovery which are very important aspects for junior shooters,” Narang said.

“OGQ supported me at a time when it was really required. I want the younger generation to get the same kind of support going forward into Vision 2024 and beyond.” Gagan said.

Viren Rasquinha, CEO of OGQ, said: “It is a matter of great pride for OGQ to be involved with Project Leap. Gagan was the first athlete to be supported by OGQ ten years ago and now we are proud to have a very strong association with GNSPF through Project Leap.”
