Hard Work Pays Off Rahi World Cup Gold Medal

Rahi first Indian to win World Cup pistol title,” so read the headline on the cover page of The Times of India, New Delhi edition, Saturday, April 6, 2013. The news item is about a 23 year old Indian girl from Kolhapur, Maharashtra,  Rahi Sarnobat, who created a history on Friday, April 5, 2013 by winning the Gold Medal  in the 25m Pistol Shooting event in the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup being held at Changwon in South Korea.

“It is a dream come true for me. I had been working hard with coach Anatoli Puddubny for the last few months at the Gun for Glory Academy,” said Rahi, who had earlier won a gold medal (in pairs), as well as, a silver medal (in singles) in the 2010 CWG , a bronze medal in the 2011 ISSF World Cup in USA and also participated in  the 2012 London Olympics.

Bravo, Rahi! Keep it up. You have done your country proud by your remarkable win.

Lastly; “Keep your dreams alive. Understand [that] to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those  who believe,” with these words of Gail Devers, I sign off reiterating once again that you can also fulfill  your dreams like Rahi did by hard work…I also take this opportunity to thank my readers, whose encouragement has kept me going and made me  publish, today, this 25th blog-post. Keep encouraging me …and once again, Thank you very much…
