Former world No.1 shooter Heena Sidhu has begun her preparations for the upcoming Asian Games in the right earnest, focusing primarily on polishing basics and strengthening technique.
The ace shooter is focusing on strengthening her technique and polishing the basics as she looks to put up a strong show at the Jakarta Games next month, following her twin medal feat at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Heena is currently undergoing preparations at the NRAI-organised national camp in the state-of-the-art Madhya Pradesh Shooting Academy in Bhopal, where she is training for close to eight-nine hours a day in a bid to hone her skills ahead of the quadrennial tournament.
A lot of emphases is being laid on her stability and trigger coordination in the 10-meter Air pistol event and shot timing in the 25-meter sports pistol, the latter being a time fire event.
“This camp is more about polishing the basics and strengthening the technique and then the next one on August will be more about exposing myself to present and contingencies,” said Helena, who won a gold in the 25-meter sports pistol and a silver in the 10-meter air pistol at the Gold Coast Games.
“For the 25-meter sports pistol, we are working on smoother and precise lifting while in the 10 meter, a lot of work is being done on scatt,” said.
