Earlier in June, Ronjan Sodhi started it all, winning the gold at the ISSF World Cup in Belgrade and in the process equalled two world records in double trap.

However, there was heartburn for the Delhi lad as he was not given a ticket to Beijing with international shooting federation (ISSF) denying him a 'hardship quota' despite the two double world records.

In fact, the youth gave more hope in shooting when 16-year-old Asher Noria from Hyderabad bettered Rathore's silver-medal winning score of 179.
A big fan of Athens gold medallist Ahmed bin Hasher Al Maktoum of UAE, Asher shot 180 to clinch the Commonwealth Youth gold in double trap.
