When Esha Singh narrowly missed making it to the Tokyo Olympics within the pistol capturing class early this February, she was naturally disenchanted. She had completed third. However as luck would have it, one other window of alternative has opened for her.

With the Olympics being pushed to 2021 as a result of coronavirus pandemic, she is on the checklist of shooters named by the Nationwide Rifle Affiliation of India (NRAI) final Friday as a part of the probables for the Olympics. This offers Esha a 12 months to enhance her factors to make it to the Video games.

 

“I stand a great chance of making it to the Olympics if I can improve my rankings in this year’s championships,” says the Hyderabad shooter. “This time, I’m excited and assured that I can higher my rankings and factors with my efficiency.

For now, Esha will prepare at house. “I have the entire infrastructure, so I shall practise in my house until the association asks us to join the training camp in November,” says the Asian Champion, including that her rapid problem is to knock off the rustiness.

“Although I have been practising, I haven’t played any matches of late due to the lockdown. So, I need to warm up and get into the groove quickly. My personal trainer and physiotherapist has been helping me on that,” the Junior World Cup medallist says.

 

At 15, Esha is the youngest Indian within the pistol capturing class to be a part of the Olympic core coaching group. “I feel so excited and proud! Since I am still young, I believe I have the great advantage of being able to continue in the sport for a long time,” says Esha, who gained the Junior Girls’s Air pistol Silver and the Blended Air Pistol Bronze (with Gaurav Rana), within the Junior World Cup in 2019.
Esha, who took to the game on the age of 9, has come a great distance. “Playing at the highest level and on the world stage made me realise that I should be grateful for the opportunities I have had. The more you push yourself, the more you understand yourself,” she explains.

 

A Customary X pupil, Esha admits that managing research and sport was difficult. “But my teachers have been supportive. I am like a special student for them (smiles). Whenever I had to be away to play a tournament, they would walk the extra mile to tutor me on my return,” reveals Esha.

“When I became the National Champion in 2018, my entire class came to the airport to give me a warm welcome. It was a thrilling moment,” says Esha who trains for 3-Four hours a day in the course of the lockdown. “The pandemic taught me to enjoy the sport rather than take it seriously. Every time I prepare for a championship, I carry pressure; but the pandemic made me realise that fundamentally, our mindset should be very open,” she says.

 

The spirited teen feels that failures helped her develop into what she is immediately. “I have had bad phases, but every tournament taught me a lesson. As the saying goes, ‘everything happens for a reason’, if I hadn’t encountered those failures, perhaps I would not know how to handle pressure in crucial ties in the future,” she indicators off.
