On Sunday Col Rathore once again proved all his Critics wrong by equaling the World Record in Double Trap with 148 points out of the maximum of 150 at the Asian Shotgun Championship held in Kuala Lumpur.
THE ARMY Colonel who was struggling to regain his lost form shot 46 out of 50 to take the overall tally to 194 /200 and clinched the individual Gold Medal. He also helped his Indian Team to grab Bronze Medal in the Championship.
Col Rathore said that the critics had already written him off but I was lucky enough to add another Gold Medal in my kitty to talk about when I grow old.
His Milestones are :
2002 –Commonwealth Games- 2 Gold Medals
2003 – World Shotgun Championship—Bronze
2004- Olympics- Silver Medal
2006 – Commonwealth Games- a Gold and a Silver
2006 – Asian Games- A Silver and a Bronze.
2011- Asian Shotgun- Gold Medal
Indeed Col Rathore is a great fighter of the game and we salute this Soldier of ours with our all the best wishes in his real life too.
