Biography

Chain singh earned the quota berth in the 50 m rifle 3 positions after winning the bronze in the 2014 Incheon Asiad. He consolidated that place by reaching the final of the ISSF world cup in Gabala in Azerbaijan 2015. At the SAF Games in Guwahati, in February, he won six gold medals, three in individual and three in team events.

 

Chain is the national record holder in the event along with 50 m rifle prone category. It was only after joing the Army in 2008 that he took to the shooting sport. A year later he won the junior national in his favoured event, 50 m rifle three position. From a cricker-lover his interest changed dramatically.

 

Though his progress to senior ranks was less spectacular, the Incheon bronze medal announced his arrival. He soon touched wonted form with gold medal winning performances in the International shooting competition of Hanover in May last year.
