For Divyansh Singh Panwar, winning gold medal at Asian Games was a dream come true. He along with his team members Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar and Rudrankksh Patil emerge victorious in the 10 metre air-rifle event.
Divyansh Panwar, who belongs to Jaipur, fell in addiction of mobile game PubG a few years ago. He used to be engrossed almost all the time on his mobile playing the game. His father Ashok Panwar, who works in Jaipur's SMS Hospital, was a worried man. Her mother Nirmala Devi is a nurse in the same hospital.
“I bought rifle and gave it to Divyansh so that he could get rid of the addiction of Pubg. I would send him to shooting range every day for practise and gradually the craze of shooting won over the excitement of the mobile game. He was excellent in Shooting,” father said.
Later for the advance practice, Divyansh went to Delhi. He went for coaching to Deepak Kumar Dubey at Karni Singh Shooting Range. He fine tuned his skills and progressively won medals at each level to qualify for Asian Games.
Geeta – source of inspiration for Divyansh
The Gold Medallist always keep Bhagwat Geeta in his pocket. When ever he feels little low, it's slokas of Geeta which pump him up.
“Many a times I would see Divyansh depressed by his performance would perform worse after that. I suggested him to read Geeta and personify its learnings. Since then he always keep Geeta in his pocket and read out slokas before going for the kill,” coach Deepak Dubey said.
