PANAJI: Mandrem MLA Jit Arolkar launched the Rifle and Pistol Shooting event at
the ongoing 37th National Games at the Yash Shooting Hub at Mandrem where the 10m, 25m and
50m events will be taking place.
“It is a proud privilege to welcome you all to Mandrem village and it is both an honour and
opportunity for us to be hosting you all at this event,” Arolkar said.
Arolkar recalled his days as a sportsman and the words of his coach who told him when on the field
to apply his mind, body and soul. “What this means was that we had to give 100% on the field. If we
give 100% on the field then I have no doubt that you will do well not only now at the national
games, but at the Asian Games and at the Olympics as well,” Arolkar said.
The shooting events which began yesterday will continue until November 09.
Yogesh Padloskar the owner of the shooting range as well as the sarpanch of Mandrem were
present on the occasion.
