  • During an interview, Manisha Keer discussed that it was a lot of struggle to establish herself as a Trap shooter coming from a lower middle-class family as Trap Shooting is considered to be a sport for the royals or rich. She said,

    I come from a humble family in Bhopal. My father is a small fisherman. Growing up, I understood the importance of money from a rather young age and used to help my father in fishing. I had six siblings and my father could barely make enough money for all our expenses. Even though life wasn’t easy back then, I always had this innate motivation to do something in life. The turning point came when I visited the State Shooting Academy with my elder sister once. Our visit to the academy coincided with the Shotgun Trials held at the academy. Ever since I have been playing, I have tried as much as possible to improve with each tournament I have participated in.”

    I recall, I was standing there watching the trials when the Olympian Mansher Singh approached me and asked me to give the sport a shot. Let alone prior training needed to shoot, I didn’t even know the technique required to hold the gun. However, when I gave the sport a try, something within me clicked and I hit the target easily. Impressed by my shot, the authorities asked me to pursue the sport seriously and they also offered me training. That moment changed it all for me and the rest has been history. Since I played my first shot, I have been training extensively and playing with all the dedication that I have ever been able to muster. All thanks to the generosity of the state, I was provided with the equipment necessary for me to learn and become better at the sport. I stay at the academy only so that there are no distractions whatsoever.”
