In an interaction, the Nepal-born shooter said he has worked hard on his shortcomings, and is aiming to win the gold medal in the upcoming CWG.
The 2016 Summer Games turned out to be a flop show by the Indian shooters, with Jitu, a prospective medal prospect failing to qualify for the men’s 50 metre pistol, his pet event as well as the 10m air pistol event with eighth-place finish.
“All my dreams were shattered at Rio, but I have worked hard to put those behind me now. The preparations have really been good, all the shooters are doing really well in the training camp for the CWG,” Jitu said.
“Personally, I have worked on a few technical shortcomings which I believe will help me perform better in Australia.”
Asked about his technique which has fetched him and the country a rich haul of medals, the Indian Army marksman said: “Every shooter has a different technique. Some will shoot after 15 seconds or some will shoot later. I have my own technique and rhythm is important for me.”
Jitu, however, is worried over recent media reports which suggested that shooting will be dropped from the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
