    Saneev Rajput wins Silver Medal in 50m Rifle 3 position Men in the ongoing World Cup and thereby secures another quota place for India at 2020 Olympics.Now,12 athletes have qualified for India.

    He was leading his opponent by 1 point with 1 Shot to go.His opponent got 10 and Sanjeev Choked and got 8.8 thereby loosing the Gold Medal by 0.2 but atleast he got the quota place.Save your luck for the Olympics i guess.

    India wins Gold(Deepak and Apurvi) as well as Bronze(Anjum and Divyansh) in 10m Mixed Air Rifle event in the ongoing World Championships.

    There is no quota for Mixed Team event, I think it is Rankings Based,so it will be very helpful for the Rankings as well to qualify for 2020 Olympics.

    Both Indian Teams of (Manu and Saurabh) and (Abhishek and Yashaswani) have finished 1st and 2nd respectively in 10m air pistol mixed event qualification which means that both the Indian Teams will be fighting for Gold and Silver between themselves. So, in other words another Gold and Silver Medal Secured for India.

    No,quota but will boost ranking points.

    Guys, World Wrestling Championships will be starting from 14 Sept this month. It will serve as an Olympic Qualifier as well.(First 6 in each Olympic Category will secure a Quota Place for Tokyo most probably). Last time it was top 6 in each Olympic Category and it should be the same this time around as well(not 100 but I am 90 percent sure).

    The Seeds for each category have been shared (Only 4 Wrestlers in each category are Seeded) and to my surprise many Indians have been seeded.

    1) Bajrang(65kg, 1st Seed)
    2) Rahul Aware(61 kg, 2 nd seed)
    3) Deepak Punia (84 kg, 4th Seed)
    4) Seema(Women 50 kg,seeded 2nd)

    Apart from them Vinesh is ranked 6th in her new category (53kg) therefore not seeded.Only  4 seeds.

    Pooja Dhanda is also ranked 6th in her category (57 kg women) but didn't qualify for World Championships.She could qualify in future if our representative in 57 kg doesn't qualify from this event.

    Only,Rahul's category is a non-Olympic category.

    So, if we talk purely on Rankings terms,then 4 of Wrestlers should secure a Quota place for Tokyo Olympics.

    Let's see how it all goes because I have not seen Seema and Deepak wrestle.

    So,before the Tournament starts,Bajrang and Vinesh should definitely qualify for Tokyo Olympics for us.

    Let's see how it all transpires.
