Bangalore: Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra will be training elite young shooters at a two-day workshop here, starting Monday, hosted by the Sports Authority of India (SAI).

This unique workshop is hosted by GoSports Foundation, a non-profit venture primarily focused on the development of India's best and most promising junior Olympic and Paralympic athletes, in association with the Abhinav Bindra Foundation.

"I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to train under some of the finest coaches in the world and every one of my experiences with them has helped me develop into a better shooter. We at the Abhinva Bindra Foundation and GoSports Foundation hope to play the role of guide and mentor to young talent and ensure that they are given every opportunity to excel whilst only having to concentrate on the most important aspect of their goal, shooting," said Bindra in a statement Sunday.
