Sharmin shoots today
Sharmin Akter Ratna, Bangladesh's lone shooter in the London Olympics, will be hoping to put on her best show when she takes the field for the 10m Air Rifle event at the Royal Artillery Barracks in London today.
The 24-year old SA Games gold medallist, who has been undergoing extensive training in Bristol under Bangladeshi coach Shoyebuzzaman for more than two months, will be among 55 shooters from different countries taking part in the event.
Ratna, one of the five athletes from Bangladesh; all of whom went on wild cards -- is considered to be the best chance for Bangladesh to put up a good show in this year's Olympics.
Bangladesh's best female shooter has been in good form of late and has adapted well with the weather conditions in England, and is expected to better her best score of 503.3 which she set in 2010 SA Games in New Delhi.
