Will she become the next Abhinav Singh Bindra? This is the question that pops up in people’s minds when they see Meghana perform.
Well, Meghana is right on target and is all set to impress with her skills. A second year BE student of Jain University, Meghana won the silver in the junior international competition in Suhl, Germany in 2012.
She also won a bronze the same year at Plzen, Czech Republic. All this in the 10 m Air Rifle event. She also won the individual
gold and the team silver in the international junior shooting competition in Germany.
They missed the team gold as Meghana (391), Shriyanka (398) and Tejaswini (399) had a combined score of 1188. Australia also had the same total but got the gold for more number of bull's-eye shots (maximum 10).
Meghana was the recipient of the Karnataka Olympic Association Award 2013 for her splendid performances in the state, national and international meets in her age group.
With her family fully supportive of her shooting pursuits, Meghana is bound to bring laurels to the country sooner than later.
Incidentally, her father Mallikarjun and mother Meenakshi are both engineers and her brother Manas is also doing engineering.
It is only a matter of time before this young shooter proves her mettle on international platforms and brings back laurels.
