India have already won a record 19 quota places for the Paris Olympic Games, including all eight in rifle, seven in pistol and four in shotgun. And Palak Gulia, Surbhi Rao, and Sainyam are chasing a second Paris Olympics quota place in women's 10m air pistol for India.

It's worth noting that Esha Singh earned India a 10m air pistol quota from the Asian Qualifying event held in Jakarta in January. A country can secure a maximum of two quotas in each event.

Who are Palak Gulia, Surbhi Rao, and Sainyam?

Gulia is the reigning Asian Games champion in the women’s 10m air pistol with a Games record of 242.1 points. The 18-year-old from Jhajjar in Haryana was also part of the Indian team that claimed silver in the team event in Hangzhou.

Rao, 24, bagged a silver medal at the Asian championships in South Korea last year in the 10m air pistol mixed team event with Sarabjeet Singh. Sainyam is another breakout star. The 19-year-old won gold at the ISSF Junior World Cup in Germany last year.
