Pakistan’s lone shooter in the Olympics, Khurram Inam, is undergoing extensive training at the historic Royal Artillery Barracks which will play host to all shooting events at the London Olympics.
Inam is a wild-card entrant and will become the first Pakistan athlete to feature in three Olympics in individual competitions. As many as 36 shooters from 25 countries will vie for medals in the skeet competition with the preliminary round scheduled for July 30 and 31.
The National Rifle Association of Pakistan Secretary Javed Lodhi, who is accompanying Inam as manager, said that the shooter was training for over ten hours daily.
“It’s his third day of intense practice,” Lodhi told The Express Tribune from London. “Inam is doing his best to prepare for the event which is the toughest due to presence of the world’s best. He is trying to get used to the conditions at the Royal Artillery which are different from what he has trained in back home.”
