Olympic quotas withdrawn from New Delhi shooting WC

New Delhi: All the 16 Olympic quotas allotted to New Delhi World Cup were on Thursday withdrawn owing to denial of visas to Pakistani shooters in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack. This was announced by ISSF president Vladimir Lisin during his address to the season-opening World Cup at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range. Pakistan shooters’ participation in the tournament became the bone of contention since the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama killed more than 40 CRPF personnel last Thursday. It was learnt that the International Olympic Committee is deliberating on the matter and a decision of its Executive Board is likely to be issued on Friday, officials said. (PTI)
