"India has several medal prospects, but taking anyone's name is not correct," Bindra said, when reporters asked him about promising shooters who can win medals at the next Olympics.

The 2020 Olympic Task Force, of which Bindra was a part, has submitted its report to the union sports ministry two months ago, he said.

Earlier, he inaugurated 10 metre, 25 metre and 50 metre shooting ranges at the Madhya Pradesh Shooting Academy in Bhopal. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also present.


The shooting ranges follow international standards.
