Good Sports: Fisherman's Daughter is a  Shooting Star

The women’s trap team of Manisha Keer, Kirti Gupta, and Rajeshwari Kumari won a silver medal for India at the recent International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Shotgun competition in Cairo, Egypt. It was the 12th international medal that 21-year-old Keer has won in her career.

Her talent was discovered by a shooting academy in 2013 when she was just 14. Her father, Kailash Keer, is a fisherman near Bhopal.

“I don’t know anything about shooting,” he told The Times of India. “All I know is she is bringing glory to the country and she’s happy.”

While growing up, Manisha helped her father catch fish and sell them in a Bhopal market. “Manisha still goes out fishing with me when she is at home,” he said.
