Weather will affect all shooters in Olympics, says Sodhi

Ronjan Sodhi hopes for luck
London, Jul 19: He will be more than happy if a little bit of luck goes in his favour, but medal hopeful Ronjan Sodhi on Thursday made it clear that Indian shooters will have no excuse to offer as far as weather and range conditions are concerned during the London Olympics 2012.

Barring those whose events are to be held indoors, the English weather could prove to be crucial to the shooters' performances.

"It is level-playing field out there and the weather and range will affect all the shooters, so that is going to be no excuse," Sodhi said at the Games Village.

Sodhi agreed that the weather will have maximum impact on his double trap event, but added that one has to be prepared for it.

"See I have been in this sport for a long time and having being World Champion in 2009 and winner of World Cup, I know how it works. You may be the greatest shooter of all time but you need a bit of luck on a particular day."

Talking about the (The Royal Artillery Barracks) Range, where the shooting events will take place, Sodhi said, "It is good and no cause for any excuse."

Asked how he was feeling at the Games village, the ace shooter replied, "Well the initial excitement has died down, now I am feeling relaxed and good. It is good to be with some of the best sportspersons in the world. Having said that I must say I am enjoying every moment in the village."
