Jhajjar,
Enthused by her consistent medal-winning performance at the global level, teen shooting sensation Manu Bhaker said she would try to maintain the momentum in coming tournaments as well.

She clinched a gold medal in the 10-m air pistol event at the Commonwealth Games

“I will toil hard to improve my performance and bring more laurels to the country,” Manu (16) told the media on reaching Bahadurgarh on Sunday.

Her next target? “To win gold in World Cup Shooting Championship scheduled to begin on April 20 in South Korea. I will leave for South Korea after three days,” said the 16-year-old shooter from the district’s Goria village.

To another query, Manu said she was confident of winning a medal in the CWG. “Another Indian shooter gave me a tough competition till the last round, but I didn’t lose hope.”

She urged parents to provide ample opportunities to their daughters as they could match boys in any field.

Her father, Ram Kishan Bhaker, said residents of Goria village would felicitate Manu on Monday. “CM Manohar Lal Khattar will also honour Manu at a function in Jhajjar the same day.”
