We\'ll present our objection if shooting is scrapped: IOA

Indian Olympic Association is yet to get an official confirmation about shooting being scrapped from the programme of 2022 Commonwealth Games but said it will ask the organisers to reconsider its decision.

There have been reports that shooting would not be included in the Birmingham Games programme though some media outlets said such a decision is not yet finalised.

Shooting is an optional sport and is not among the 10 core sports which are mandatory in every Commonwealth Games. A host country can include up to seven from a list of optional sports/disciplines.

It has been contested at every Commonwealth Games since Kingston 1966, with the exception of Edinburgh 1970.

India are among the top performing countries in shooting in the Commonwealth Games. The country is currently second on the all-time medal table having won 56 gold, 40 silver and 22 bronze.

Reacting to the development, IOA Secretary General Rajeev Mehta said, \"We have not yet received any official communication from the 2022 CWG organisers or the CGF about this. So I cannot say with certainty (that shooting has been scrapped).

\"We will take it up with the organisers and the CGF and present our objection if such a decision (to scrap shooting) is taken,\" he said.
