Heena Sidhu: Profile 2012 London Olympics (Shooting)Full Name: Heena Sidhu

Born: 1989 (age 23)

Sports: Shooting

Event: 25m pistol

Heena Sidhu from Patiala, Punjab is probably the luckiest member in the Indian contingent for London Olympics.

She booked her spot in the women’s pistol event only when National Rifle Association of India`s (NRAI) requested for exchange of quota place with International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) in April this year.

This 23-year old ace shooter from Punjab started shooting only in 2006 when she was in 12th standard. Within one year she became a pro; started participating in all the major events.

Her notable achievements have been a silver medal in ISSF World Cup 2009 at Beijing followed up by a gold medal in women`s 10 metre air pistol (Pairs) at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and then a silver in 10m air pistol (Team) at 2010 Asian Games, Guangzhou.
